The gun put all the naysayers’ questions to bed on Feb. 27, 1917, when it was publicly demonstrated at Congress Heights area of Washington, D.C. Actually directing the men running the guns was then-Capt. Julian S. Hatcher (far l.), who would later become a major general and technical editor of American Rifleman.
