10-inch brass howitzer, real or error?

Along the lines of raising questions, this item states that 10-inch brass howitzers existed on Governor's Island at one time. Since I've never seen any other references to Brass 10-inch howitzers, I wonder if it is an error and the scribe meant to write "10 inch mortars." I have seen many references to "Brass 10-inch mortars."
