That is a very big gun for a very small boy. He looks very determined though. Do you know him?

No. I don't know who he is. I found him in some pictures from the civil war. So this would be 1860-65.

Husband says he is standing in front of a Dalgren gun. But ship seems to be wooden. You can see a whole lot of cutlasses hanging up, and also a hatchet, on the gun.

Gosh I hadn't noticed the cutlasses in the background! I had never heard of Dalgren guns before but there is a very interesting article about them in wikipedia. So thank you to you and husband!

I'm very intrigued by the heart on the boy's chest. I wonder who put it there?

In my head I keep hearing Cleveland "If you wanted to be a seaman you should have started at 12...."
