Blackbeard Lives! (His cannon, at least)

Blackbeard’s Cannon Salvaged – The Daily Beast.

The Queen Anne’s Revenge just keeps giving us gifts from beyond the grave. Although it’s rusty now, this 2,000 pound cannon might have threatened the biggest British man o’ war–although from what I’ve read, Blackbeard much preferred intimidation tactics over out-and-out dogfights (thus the beard!)

Could this once have taken out a British ship of the line?
