Cannon at the Ready
Californios Fire
Battle Reenactment in 2013
The Californios Prep the Cannon


The museum has been holding the Reenactment of the Old Woman’s Gun (cannon) for over 5 years, however the museum has never owned the cannon that was used. We are looking to raise funds to buy a replica cannon for the reenactment and the museum. We need your help!


This battle was one of the few times the U.S. Navy and Marines ever retreated in battle and this is due to the Old Woman’s Gun (cannon) that the Californios had. It is one of the few victories for the Californios in the Mexican American War. Help us with funding so the museum will have historically representative cannon that will help bring awareness to this lost piece of history.
