Hurricane Matthew Washes Up Civil War Cannonballs in S.C.-- Part 4: Fuses

Former Folly Beach Mayor Richard Beck discovered them and said:  "I knew they were cannonballs.  One of them had a very distinct hole in it that went directly into it, just knowing a little bit about the Civil War, I knew they put fuses in cannonballs for them to explode when they desired them to."

Beck said there were around fifteen cannonballs, most of which were welded together by rust.
