150 Pdr. Armstrong Gun at Ft. Fisher immediately after the January 1865 battle. In this photo you can see the roller handspikes used to elevate the rear of the carriage after loading until the fixed forward wheels bore on the two iron covered chassis rails. The gun could then be pushed back into `battery`. Also you can see the `shell cradle` which hooked onto the muzzle-face during the ramming sequence. Are those captured Confederate soldiers in back of the gun along the flank of the huge sand traverse? You be the judge; I think we need a higher resolution photo to determine their uniform details.
