12-Pound James Rifled Gun
This 12-pound James rifled gun was an early attempt to convert smoothbore bronze guns into rifled cannons. That is a limber to the left of the gun that is used to move the cannnon. A six horse team would pull the limber and the cannon. The New York State Monument is in the background.
