Re: [Weapons] US Purchase of French Artillery 1807

I was looking for something in Harold L. Peterson's classic "Round Shot and Rammers," Stackpole/Bonanza 1969. On pp. 74, Peterson states: "Some French pieces and carriages of the Gribeauval system came to the United States with the Louisiana purchase, and a few of these participated in the Battle of New Orleans..." So, not surprisingly, Harold Peterson had this all figured out long ago.
