Dahlgren Boat Howitzer  2008 018

Dalhgren Boat Howitzer Carriage

The Dahlgren field carriage gave the boat howitzer portability on land, drawn with drag-ropes “readily by a dozenmen, a force always disposable from any boat that could carry a gun of this class.” We offer two sizes of Dahlgren boat howitzer carriages, one for the light 12-pounder howitzer and one for the medium or heavy (both the same). These carriages are not fabricated by burning out metal and welding up parts, these carriage are cast in ductile iron to the exact dimensions. We offer both carriages with wood wheels and the large in either wood or an aluminum wheel that replicates the wood wheel but can be used for out door display.
