Civil War Cannonball Found in South Carolina

From the May 11, 2016, 10 WIS TV "Civil War cannonball found in the Saluda River" by Caroline Patrickis.

Lexington County, S.C..  A cannonball, about the size of a tennis ball, was discovered in the lower Saluda River.  The sheriff's department took it to their office immediately and called the bomb squad to check it out.

It is believed that it was uncovered by the October 2015 flood.

The Saluda River flows by Columbia, South Carolina, occupied by General Sherman's Army late in the Civil War.
