I am looking for information regarding a Confederate cannon patented by D.W.Hughes from Memphis, Tn. area. I am looking for any kind of documentation such as drawings/descriptions/comments/patent applications on the construction and/or use of these cannon during the Civil War.
I have a photocopy of an article published by Edwin Olmstead and Robert S. Meistell, titled : "A Tentative 1.6-inch Hughes breechloading Smoothbore" but I do not know in what magazine this article was printed (The Company Journal)? So any help in securing the provedence of this article would be appreciated.
