Unfortunately I had only a limited amount of time to devote to the museum, and I am not sure that the 3inch gun was located where I would have had full access and could conduct a detailed examination to ferret out the exact model number and other details.

I did find the Spanish American War Memorial, which faces the Liberty Memorial, so I sort know how my grandfather Harry Doster Thompson, late 71st New York Infantry and 27th United States Volunteer Infantry, looked like back in the day

Of which I have a photograph, Grandfather Thompson is the fellow sprawled in the front with his hand on his rifle.
