These are 3.80 inch bronze James rifles cast at the Ames Manufacturing Co. They are attractively displayed in Riverfront Park in Ft. Madison. There are plaques on the back of each cannon mount. Contrary to the plaque, the bronze James rifles were only produced in 1861 and 1862. They can be found near the flags in the park. Photos taken 12/29/07.
