Revolutionary War Battle of Stony Point 4 lb Cannon Ball
Approximately 3.1 in. in diameter and lbs 13 oz. The Battle ofStony Point took place on July 16, 1779, during the AmericanRevolutionary War. In a well planned and executed nighttime attack, ahighly trained select group of George Washington's ContinentalArmy troops under the command of Brigadier General "Mad Anthony"Wayne defeated British troops in a quick and daring assault on theiroutpost in Stony Point, New York, approximately 30 mi (48 km) northof New York City. The British suffered heavy losses in a battle thatserved as an important victory in terms of morale for the ContinentalArmy. While the fort was ordered evacuated quickly after the battle byGeneral Washington, this key crossing site was used later in the war byunits of the Continental Army to cross the Hudson River on their way tovictory over the British.Would suggest new owner label this with permanent tag or the traditional white paint in order to not lose the site location. Incredibly rare site.
