A notable piece of explorer’s equipment, as stated in the Lewis and Clark Journals, was a small cannon swivel mounted on the keelboat which led the way for scores of boat cannon which were to follow it up the Missouri. Nearly every keelboat and larger skiff carried a swivel gun and continued to do so during the next thirty years of trade. This iron gun is 24” long with a 1 ¾” bore. Breech diameter is 6” with muzzle diameter being 4 ¾”. Trunnions are 1 5/8” round X 1 ¾” long. Weight is 91 lbs. ARTILLERY RELEASE FORM REQUIRED. CAN BE DOWNLOADED FROM WEBSITE.
