Fourteen people were killed and 18 wounded as nearly 800 mounted Confederates overpowered the 350 men of the town's federal garrison. Property owner Randall Pratt says a cannonball also was found when the property was restored in 1980. That cannonball, which had been shot into a wall, is in a county museum. Pratt plans to keep the latest find at the home.
