Remaking a Marvel of Pittsburgh Industry
The Heinz History Center unveiled its newest exhibition last Saturday, Pennsylvania's Civil War. Among the exhibits is a replica of the most impressive cannon of its era: the 57 ton Rodman Columbiad, forged in Pittsburgh. The cannon was a technological breakthrough in its time, and the recreation of the enormous cannon — all the way down to the initials scrawled into the barrel — is a testament to how modern technology can improve the museum experience.
Project Manager, Tavis Gillum at LF Creative Group explains the replication process and how this technology could change the way museums interpret the past.
