On April 10, 1862, German volunteers of the 46th N. Y. Regiment manned this gun and the one on the right. On that date the guns bore down on Fort Pulaski from one of eleven Federal batteries located on Tybee and McQueens Islands. Following their victory over the fort, the troops moved the guns to Cockspur Island for the duration of the war. In the mid - 1960's both guns were recovered near the North Pier.
