Artillery Through the Ages: A Short Illustrated History of Cannon, Emphasizing Types Used in America by Albert Manucy

Looking at an old-time cannon, most people are sure of just one thing: the shot came out of the front end. For that reason these pages are written; people are curious about the fascinating weapon that so prodigiously and powerfully lengthened the warrior's arm. Albert C. Manucy (1910-1997) was an author, historian and a Fulbright Scholar of Minorcan descent, from St. Augustine, Florida. Manucy is a descendant of Josef Manucy, who sailed from the city of Mahón to work on Andrew Turnbull's plantation in what was to be the failed colony of New Symrna. In 1779 Manucy's ancestor and the entire colony, made up mostly of Minorcans, left the dismal conditions of New Smyrna en masse. They walked 70 miles north to the then British controlled St. Augustine to request sanctuary, which they were granted. Manucy received a Master's degree in history from the University of Florida in 1934. He then obtained a position with the National Park Service and served as the official historian of the Castillo de San Marcos
