Split Trail Carriage And Griffen Ordnance Rifle

Date:
1928

The T-1 was the first U.S. split trail carriage design. The split trail was one of a number of design features learned from captured German artillery pieces in World War I. The principal advantage to the split trail was its elimination of the problems caused with the box carriage when firing the gun at high angles. The split trail carriage developed into the M1 carriage, which was used on the M2 Howitzer, the most widely used U.S. gun of World War II. As with most U.S. guns of the 1920s and 1930s, it has a M1897 75mm barrel and recoil system.

Battery C Flag

Date:
c. 1864

In 1838 Battery C, 3rd Regiment, commanded by Captain Samuel Ringgold became the first artillery battery to receive horses so that every soldier was mounted. Commonly known as a flying battery because of their capability for rapid movement, Ringgold's battery was soon followed by three other batteries, one from each of the four artillery regiments. The flying batteries played a decisive role in winning the Mexican War battle honors. Around the edge, the flag honors the Battery's service during the battles of Palo Alto, Resaca de la Palma, Buena Vista, and Monterey. Read more »

"Slo Poke", M1922 Mark X Gun Motor Carriage

Date:
Rock Island, IL: Rock Island Arsenal

One of a tiny number of experimental self-propelled guns developed by the Ordnance Corps after World War I. "Slo Poke" features a Model 1920 Experimental 4.7 inch Gun mounted on a Caterpillar tractor. It was built at the Rock Island Arsenal and tested at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland. The driver sat in the small open compartment on the right side. The Field Artillery Branch did not support the development of self-propelled artillery pieces until after the beginning of World War II believing that horses and towed artillery pieces would be adequate.
