Donated Civil War Munition Found to Contain Live Fuse

Plattsburgh, New York A local family donated an old civil war era munition to the Battle of Plattsburgh Association that they had in their possession. The president of the association inspected the munition and discovered that it had the potential to contain a live fuse. The bomb was then transported to the Plattsburgh City Police Station for further analysis.

The police contacted the EOD unit from Camp Johnson in Vermont for technical support in identifying the condition of the munition. EOD identified the munition as a Bromann Cannonball and determined that the ordnance was not an immediate explosive safety threat and recommended that the item be secured in a storage area by the police until EOD could send personnel over to recover and dispose of the item.
