20 In Muzzle -Loading Cannon

This Gun was one of two guns made in the U.S. for the Civil War.  After the war it was given to Bolivia together with other ordnance.  After the War of the Pacific, this gun was taken by Chili as a part of the war reparations.  This gun is now mounted in front of the Naval Headquarters in Valpariso, Chili.
