When the Ordnance Board revised the artillery system for 1861, several new patterns emerged including the 13-inch Sea Coast Mortar. One of the most famous guns of the war was the well photographed 13-inch “Dictator” which fired 227 pound mortar shells from a railroad platform propelled by 20 pounds of powder into the Confederate lines during the siege of Petersburg.
