Artist's Description

According to this website http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2102

“The Atomic Cannon, an M65-280mm, is 42 feet long and weighs 42,500 lbs. It can throw a shell 20 miles…”
“The atomic cannon was a huge piece of ordnance built by the United States in the mid-1950s to hurl nuclear shells far enough that they wouldn’t kill the people who fired them.”

There is a sign at this memorial that says this is one of three in existence, but the website says there are eight that survived the war. I do not know which is correct. This one is supposed to be the largest. It is located at the top of a big hill in Junction City, Kansas.
