A gun from the ALMIRANTE OQUENDO
to see another gun from the ALMIRANTE OQUENDO at St. Louis, Missouri
This gun, removed from the ALMIRANTE OQUENDO
rests in the village park in Palmyra, New York, the hometown of Admiral
William Sampson. Sampson commanded the squadron which engaged the Spanish
at the Battle of Santiago, though Sampson
and his flagship, the armored cruiser NEW YORK,
were too far away to take an active part in the battle.
Below is a close-up of the gun's breech.
