So we can probably eliminate the Canadians as suspects.

Construction workers in downtown Atlanta unearthed a Civil War cannonball the other day.  USA Today's coverage is classic USA Today.

"The reason for it's [sic] being there remains a mystery," the paper says in the three-sentence summary it runs next to the seven-sentence story, for those too busy to plow through the whole thing.  The article itself offers that "there are at least two possible scenarios for how it got there."

It then goes on to cite an Atlanta historian--who, to be fair, undoubtedly had plenty of interesting things to say that weren't included in the article--as to what those scenarios are.

One is that it's from the Union Army.

The other is that it's from the Confederate Army.
