A Cannon as Memorial to Frazar Stearns


The cannon stored in Amherst College is a movable memorial to one of its students Frazar Stearns. During the war, Frazar followed his chemistry professor to attend the Battle of New Bern and was killed there. The cannon was brought back along with Frazar’s coffin and is treated as a substitute of the bright young man.
