Greenfield man fires Civil War era cannons on lawn every Fourth of July

GREENFIELD, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Frank Markel fires his Civil War era cannons every Fourth of July.

Markel says he's "just trying to celebrate our independence and put a little patriotism in everybody."

He's gotten push-back from the city of Greenfield ever since moving there.

In 2018, Markel got a $1,000 ticket for a noise violation.

He's still fighting it and plans to fire the cannons again on his front lawn Thursday.

Greenfield's Police Chief says he'll be there.
