40mm Anti-Aircraft Gun

Ballons were used during the war to keep
low flying aircrafts from entering an area. 
Ballons were also used to show locations
to purchase War Bonds.
 
The 40mm AntiAircraft Gun was purchased
by the museum as these guns were used at
the fort during World War II.  Come visit the
