Post subject: Anti-tank cannons in Memphis......missing

The City of Memphis has an old Confederate Fort, facing the river front that is appropriately called, Confederate Park. It had 6 Confederate cannon in it.

During WW2 they used to run scrap metal drives. They donated them in one of the metal drives. As a thank you, after the war the DOD gave the City 2 37mm, 2 57mm, and 2 3" anti-tank cannons to take the place of the Confederate cannon that we donated. I remember going downtown all my life and checking out those things.

They are now missing. And after repeated calls to the Park Commission, I cannot get an answer as to where they are.

Please go this link for "The rest of the Story".... and what to do to help.
