"The Gun that settled the dispute"
An Eleven-inch Dahlgren smoothbore gun in an artillery park, probably at the New York Navy Yard, sometime after the Civil War. Photograph published by E.H. Hart, 1162 Broadway, New York, circa the later 1880s.
This gun is presumably one of the two XI" Dahlgrens carried by USS Kearsarge during her battle with CSS Alabama off Cherbourg, France, on 19 June 1864.
