Ummm wow. 140 year old munitions can still go boom. They really don't make'em like they used to.

When I was stationed at Naval Weapons Station, Concord, California, they had robotic equipment for disassembling old munitions. Some of the stuff they tried to disarm using tools specially designed for the job exploded with every attempt. Common practice in the military is to detonate everything rather than take a chance.
