Manufactured - 1863

This Model 1999 [sic - it was No. 199 produced] 12pd. Napoleon Civil War era (1861-1865) cannon was built by Revere Copper Company and inspected by Thomas Jefferson Rodman (T.J.R.), the Ordinance [sic - Ordnance] Inspector. His initials are stamped on the front of the muzzle. The cannon was obtained for the City of Port Jervis by New York Congressman Thomas W. Bradley of Walden, New York. During the Civil War he served as an officer in the 124th New York State Infantry, or the "Orange Blossoms", as they were known locally and who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
The cannon was presented to the city by the local chapter of the Grand Army of the Republic on May 30th, 1903. The cannon was restored by avid local historian Jerry Walters twice, once in the 1960s and again in the 1980s.
