Istanbul was Constantinople....

Yes that's right... we're in Turkish lands now! Studying the Ottoman Turks and their invasion (and final overthrow) of Constantinople, the last city in the long standing Byzantine Empire.

They did it with huge cannons from all sides, and so that is exactly what we did!

I loved your cannon idea! I wish I had thought of that last year when we were studying Fort Sumter. My son got great joy out of using his nerf guns as cannons :) But he won't forget it, that's for sure.
