TEXAS CITY — A nearly 10,000-pound gun from a Civil War ship that sank in Galveston Bay begins its 140-mile trip to the Texas City.

The 9-inch Dahlgren gun from the USS Westfield will start its trek from the Conservation Research Laboratory at Texas A&M University in College Station, where archaeologists undertook painstaking conservation and analysis work of the gun and other artifacts from the wreck, to the Texas City Museum.
