The Widow Blakely was a British built gun delivered to the Confederacy. It was the lone Blakely at Vicksburg. The gun was on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River and firing on the Federal gun boats. During the Battle of Vicksburg, on May 22, 1863, a shell exploded in the muzzle splitting the end of the gun. Two feet were cut off and the piece was then fired as a mortar. The Widow Blakely had a 7.44" bore.
