In Grateful Acknowledgment

On 4 July 1976, the 200th birthday of our Republic, this French cannon was dedicated as a symbol of the aid received from France during our struggle for independence.

France provided men, money, materiel, and moral support without which the struggle of 1776-1782 may have ended disastrously for the colonists. This effort on the part of France made such names as Lafayette, deRochambeau, and deGrasse an integral part of the United States history that culminated in the Peace of Paris, 20 January 1783, wherein the independence of the United States of America was officially acknowledged by all.
