The Swamp Angel was a famous gun used by the Union in the Civil War. It was a 200-lb Parrott Gun used August 22 and 23, 1863, on Morris Island in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina. The gun was massive and was built using iron made from Hecla Furnace.

The rebuilt gun is currently on display in the City Square in Trenton, NJ, as that’s where its remains were recovered.
