Well, well, what have we here?

   The following is instructive in more ways than one. For it shows that free African American citizens had arms in 1841. And that citizens had military cannon. Interesting how that this event isn't taught in history classes:

The Baton Rouge Gazette: Cincinnati Riot; “The blacks, apprehensive that some serious difficulties would take place, had prepared themselves with fire-arms to resist an attack if made.”, Sept. 5, 1841
