On display are two preserved bronze cannons from the original four-gun Edenton Bell Battery (Company B, 3rd Battalion, NC Light Artillery). The cannons, including the displayed twelve-pounder "St. Paul" and six-pounder "Edenton," were poured at Richmond's Tredegar Foundry in April of 1862, using bells donated by the institutions and citizens of Edenton. The battery fought with the Army of Northern Virginia and the Department of North Carolina, was led by local officers, and consisted of men from Chowan, Tyrrell, Washington, Bertie, and Perquimans Counties.
