    original spanish cannon argentine civil war

    This is an original cannon used in a civil war in Argentina between the Federal forces from Santa Fe , Buenos Aires and Entre Rios provinces commanded by General Estanislao Lopez and Juan Manuel de Rosas against the Unitaries commanded by General Juan Lavalle to recover the government of Buenos Aires province . It happened the 26 of April of 1829 and the battle was called BATALLA DEL PUENTE DE MARQUEZ , in the Buenos Aires province ( 34º39´36"S - 58º45´24"O) . The Victory was for the Federal forces with 11 death while the Unitaries had 150 , 9 of them high officers.

    This cannon was recovered from the battlefield in the earlies 1900´s by people from the Cañuelas county and since then , it has been in the backyard of this historic family . I personally picked the cannon up from the property .
    The cannon is 57 inches long , 12 inches diameter at the breech , 9 inches at the muzzle . BORE : 82 MM (3 1/4") . Trunnions diameter : 3 1/4" . It weighs 800.26 Lbs .
    It has a beautiful original patina . It has a clear number on the uper face : 7024 that we think is an internal foundry number .
    This is a great original piece for any collection .
