Pulverized I read toward the end of the war by the Union, I seem to recall two large R.P. Parrott "rifles" were later found walled up in it. I worked in the Foundry Cove next to the West Point Foundry and Constitution Island where they were made and we found an R.P. Parrott gun platform used as a "Swamp Angel" bombarding Charleston in 1863 with incendiaries. EPA Marathon Battery Superfund National Priority remediation batteries for Nike missiles made there later, "apropos". Civil War | The New York Times (2)
