Help The Starkville Civil War Arsenal Get A Cannon

The Starkville Civil War Arsenal is trying to raise funds to acquire a Field Howitzer for the museum. The howitzer would complete the museum's collection of the different type of cannon used in the American Civil War.  Civil War Howitzers are very rare and the opportunity to acquire one comes along only once in a lifetime. 

I am trusting that there are enough passionate American history patrons out there that might like to help a small Civil War artillery museum take a huge step to another level.  The asking price of the howitzer which is in private ownership is $150,000. 

Promoting American Civil War History is the mission of the Starkville Civil War Arsenal.  In the museum's 12 year existence visitors have come from 40 states and 6 foreign countries.  There is no admission fee to visit the museum.  All you have to do is call and make an appointment for any day of the week.  You can visit the museum online at .  Take a look at Featured Items to view three YouTube videos.    Thank you for your support with this project.  Your donation will help preserve and protect this historical artifact. The donations will also allow me the privilege to display the Howitzer for the public to view and enjoy some American History
