A neat relic from Fort Henry in Kingston, Ontario, a 6" long brass and teak replica of a cannon mounted at the fort ca. 1840, in the original packaging from about 1945. The package notes that the miniature cannon's wood carriage was made from: "...Indian teakwood from the remains of the original gun carriages, which were sent out from England and mounted in Fort Henry (1837-38)..." Fine condition. The original fort was constructed during the War of 1812 to protect the Kingston Royal Naval Dockyard on Point Frederick from a possible American attack during the war and to monitor maritime traffic on the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario. The original fort was replaced by a much larger construction in the 1830s to maintain the protection of the naval dockyard and protect the southern entrance to the Rideau Canal.
