Civil War Cannonball Kills Man

May 3, 2008

Sam White, a Civil War artifact collector, was in his home in Chester, Virginia cleaning his Civil War era cannonball. He was happy and content doing so, having been a collector of Civil War relics his entire childhood and adult life. While cleaning the 140-year old cannonball, it exploded. White was killed by flying shrapnel from the exploding cannonball. Experts on old artillery said that this defies great odds. White died at the age of 53. On the day he died, White had 18 cannonballs lined up and ready to be restored. This was nothing new to him. As previously stated, this was against the odds.
