Clarksville Foundry Casts Replica Cannon for Clarksville Rotary’s 100th Anniversary

 

Clarksville FoundryClarksville, TN – Clarksville Foundry is one of the oldest continuously operating foundries in the United States. The foundry’s origins predate the Civil War, having first opened in 1847.

While the family owned and operated foundry today casts component parts for a variety of industries, it once manufactured cannons and munitions for the Confederate States of America (1861-1862).

Clarksville Foundry cast the barrel and carriage of the replica Model 1841 6-Pounder Field Gun entirely in-house, which required 47 castings and 23 additional fabricated components. Clarksville Rotary Club commissioned the cannon in honor of its 100th Anniversary this month, and the cannon will be unveiled Friday in a ceremony on the Montgomery County Courthouse grounds.
