The Douglas Cannon


What do you know about the Douglas Cannon? The cannon has its roots in the mid-1800s when it would be fired off during national celebrations. It quickly became a game wherein students stole it from each other and the administration. Since then, the Douglas Cannon has been stolen, brought back to campus, and stolen again countless times. It has been missing and rarely seen for the better part of the last 50 years.
