The Daily Dispatch: may 11, 1861., [Electronic resource], A revolving cannon. (search)
A revolving cannon. --We have had the pleasure of examining a beautiful revolving, five shooting cannon, cast and finished at the foundry of Messrs. Tappey & Lumsden. The piece is of small size, but complete in all its parts, and can be loaded with the ease and rapidity of a Colt's revolver. The weight does not exceed six hundred pounds. It carries a 3-inch ball, four pounds in weight, and shoots with great precision at the distance of 1200 yards. We understand it was made by order of the "Rangers," Capt. H. C. Pate.-- Petersburg Express.
