Atomic Annie – Part III – Junction City, Kansas
Freedom Park sits on the south shoulder of Highway 70 just outside Junction City, KS. An atomic cannon tops the park’s hill. A sign at the base of the hill offers incorrect information regarding the big gun on the hilltop. It states it is only one of three in existence. In fact, of the twenty M65 cannon manufactured, there are eight on display on American roads and museums. The other twelve? Maybe they are still in the US arsenal, waiting for deployment in some last great ground war the I hope never happens.
