The Ominous Cannon


This photo, taken from, was captioned:

As you can plainly see from the image, the cannon in question is actually one of the palace defenses, pointing outward across the front of the palace steps.

It is also a picture from 1895, over a year after the U.S. peacekeepers returned to their ship by the order of Blount.
