Kids are fascinated by cannons. These island Boy Scouts got a lesson in 1700s-era artillery Saturday at the annual Conanicut Battery Day hosted by the Jamestown Historical Society. Members of Newport Artillery Company were on hand to fire the cannon. Revolutionary War-era military reenancters set up camp to show what daily life was like for the soldiers.
