Wallpaper Description:
This 6-inch Rapid Fire Armstrong Rifle was purchased from England in 1898, because the United States did not yet have the capability to produce a small, rapid fire weapon for the defense of it's southren coastal harbors. The advent of the Spanish-American War brought about the need for such weapons in this area due to the close proximity of Cuba to Florida.
The installation was completed as a part of the armament of Fort Dade on Egmont Key, on December 10, 1898. Only a limited number of these particular weapons were purchased by the U.S. Government and these two rifles are belived to be the only remaining models in existence!! (This is a photo of only one of the two rifles). Fort Dade was deactivated in 1921 and these guns, witch were intended to defend the Southwest pass into Tampa Bay, were left to the mercy of the elements. On April 12, 1980, Pinellas County, recovered these cannons from Egmont Key. After 2 years of refurbishing, they were installed here on March 19, 1982.

Rifling number of Grooves: 24
Muzzle Velocity: 2,154 feet per second
