Princeton Bell.

Deadly Love Boat Bell of President and First Lady Tyler

Apparently the makers of the U.S.S. Princeton cannon didn't know what they were doing. It could easily have killed President Tyler and changed the course of history. It is very cool that you can walk right up, put your hands on history and ring the bell really loud! Careful though, Princeton PD is next door.
