Content Description: 

This can, appropriately, be called a "Decatur gun." No. 13 is a Spanish 27-pounder gun, cast at Barcelona in 1788 for King Charles III; it armed a gunboat captured in hand-to-hand combat by Decatur at Tripoli on 3 August 1804. Named CORZO (the male roe deer, with the connotation of swiftness), this Spanish gun has the vent astragal and chase girdle characteristic of 18th-century ordnance but is functional in line.
