XI-inch Dahlgren smooth-bore gun
Halftone reproduction of a photograph taken at Charleston, South Carolina, during the late 19th Century or early 20th Century. The gun is mounted on an iron seacoast artillery carriage.
This gun was salvaged from the USS Keokuk after she sank as a result of battle damage received during the 7 April 1863 ironclad attack on Fort Sumter, in Charleston harbor. It was subsequently employed by the Confederates.
Copied from the book "The Battery, Charleston, S.C."
