Merrimac Gun

Braving very hot weather, I went for a walk in Fredericksburg on Saturday, camera in hand. I discovered that the Fredericksburg Area Museum has a gun from the ironclad Merrimac, renamed the CSS Virginia by the Confederates. This particular gun was damaged in battle on March 8th, 1862 at Newport News, Virginia, according to the sign affixed to the gun's support.
