The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Oswego Palladium (Oswego, NY), Aug. 14, 1856

Full Text

We have in our sanctum a formidable looking specimen of the metal thrown by the dogs of war of John Bull at Oswego in 1814. - It is half of a 32 pound chain-shot, excavated by the Government Dredge, from the river bottom day before yesterday, and was presented to us by Capt. Malcolm. It has evidently done execution upon something in our harbor, as the link is broken and only half the shot is in our possession. This is the second relic Capt. M. has taken up, the first being a 32-pound round shot. Both were doubtless thrown by the British fleet that captured Oswego in the last war with England.
