A group of kids from the Boys and Girls Club of Prince William County take a look at a 10-pound parrot rifle at Camp Manassas on Thursday. The parrot rifle was capable of hitting targets a mile and a half away, according to Mike DeAngelo, who is a living historian camping out for the weekend. This particular cannon was used in the Civil War movie "Gods and Generals."
