Sold by Francis Bannerman to Col. Robert Townsend (1853 - 1915) in the early 1900's as the great chain links which crossed the Hudson at West Point during the Revolution. The original chain links were made by his great grandfather at the Sterling Iron Works. These "historic" chain links are 19th century Welsh artifacts.
