The Cannon Crew is an entegral part of the Parsons Mounted Calvary. The cannon is actually a Model 1902 3-inch field gun. The 3-inch field gun was the Army's preferred field artillery piece until World War I when the 75 mm was adopted for munitions compatibility with the Allies. It was the late 1970's when the cannon was first found at a bonfire cut site. In September of 1982, "The Spirit of '02" was first fired on the Corps of Cadets Quadrangle. In 1984, the cannon became part of the Aggie football tradition by firing a shot every time the team scored. This six piece set inlcudes the faithful depiction of the cannon, two senior cadets, two underclassmen cadets and the traditional sign that reads, "Warning Cannon Fires When Aggies Score."
