Giant WWII Cannon Heading to Del. State Park

LEWES, Del. (AP) - Three events are scheduled over the next two weeks for a World War II cannon working its way to Delaware's Cape Henlopen State Park.

The gun began its journey earlier this month from a Norfolk, Virginia., naval yard and has been traveling by barge and rail up the Eastern Shore. Park officials and the Fort Miles Historical Association are developing a section of the former base into a World War II historical attraction.

A ceremony honoring WWII veterans is scheduled Monday in Georgetown. On Tuesday, the train heads to Lewes where it will stop allow visitors to view the 66-foot-gun and take photos before it enters the park. The official unveiling of the gun is scheduled April 28 at the park.
