|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Mountain gun article.
This is not a forum for general discussion of the article's subject.
Assessed as "NA" because this is a list. Might be bettre to rename it if it maintains its current form.--Looper5920 22:57, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
This page Need a lot of work!!!!
I went and got a better link for the PopSci 1941 article. Googlebooks shows just the one page with no side ads, etc. Also that Mountain Gun article to be honest stinks. A lot of early history is left out. For example the first actual mountain gun was by the British in the American Rebellion. It was a 3 prd called the "Grasshopper" for way it bounced when being towed by one horse. I have been looking all over my house and book cases for a rare manual I got on that dang thing. It was an important weapon in the Napoleon Wars (Spain especially) and in America during the War of 1812 and then India. After that came a 12 pdr that the US developed I think from a British design. It was an important weapon during the Mexican-American 1847-49 War and the American Civil War. After the American Civil War various muzzle loaders were developed but then Krupp and Hotkiss developed Quick Firing breach loaders with fixed casing. I am going to see what I can obtain for documentation. Jack --Jackehammond (talk) 06:13, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
