For some children in Guantanamo Bay that may seem like the case. Soon after arriving in Guantanamo Bay children quickly realize that their competition in high school sports will be against adults, due to the amount of children here. Some of the W.T. Sampson High School students can feel overwhelmed by such a task. “I believe it does wear on some kids to play adults, said Billy Henry, W.T. Sampson Athletic Director. “It’s very difficult for children to play against adults. There's a lot of lopsided games, and lopsided teams, but this year the girl’s softball team has matured and we've managed to go from zero wins my first year to a record of 5-1. So, I want to say there are times when we do win. Speed over strength sometimes prevails.” Playing against adults who may have played semi-professional sports or college sports before entering the military can be a tough challenge to many of the students, but after talking to boys and girls, whose ages range from 14 -17, this may not be the case. Samantha Lonstad, who’s been living in GTMO on and off for the last twelve years, believes that winning isn’t everything. “In the beginning it was difficult to play against adults. At first it hurt to lose all the time, but then it became more competitive. Adults seem to know these sports a little better than we do, so it’s a learning lesson. It’s bad to lose sometimes but it’s still fun to play against adults; the adults don’t seem to take it so seriously. They don’t take it easy on us, which is the best thing,” she added. “We only lost two times this year,” said Matt McGuire, W.T. Sampson Junior Varsity Player. “It’s more competitive to play against adults. We can win, but it really depends on the sport. The worst sport to play against adults is basketball, because they can dunk and they’re more aggressive in basketball.” Most children seem to turn losing into motivation. “The advantages that the young kids have against adults is that they are faster, and sometimes in better shape,” said Nancy Edwards Walker, W.T. Sampson Junior Varsity Coach. “I think the most difficult challenge is the mental aspect. They mentally think they are too small, so they sometimes give up to easy. The kids need motivating factors, other than just winning, such as the importance of teamwork.” But once the season starts the motivation to beat the adults kicks in and that’s motivation enough. They love to play against their parents and their friends, they love that part of it.” A goal for many in high school is to go to college to further their education. But if you are a high school athlete, another goal is to some day continue playing sports at the next level.

Friday, May 25, 2007 4 Cannon on McCalla Hill mon um By Patrick McSherry, Special to the Gazette courtesy of Artillery Magazine, photo s The old air terminal on Guantanamo Bay Naval Station’s McCalla Hill is better known today as the site where the most recent military tribunals for suspected terrorist detainees have been held. In the shadow of this building is a monument to the First Marine Battalion, the men whose hard fought battles on this hill and at nearby Cuzco Well secured the land around Cuba’s Guantanamo Bay for the American forces during the Spanish American War. The monument bears a plaque commemorating the battalion’s battle losses in its actions to gain what became a critical U.S. military base. Atop the monument is a large, ornate, bronze muzzle-loading cannon. Oddly, in a land that saw action between Spanish, American, and in an earlier time, British forces, this ornate gun traces its roots to none of these nations. The gun is French. How did this French gun find itself perched on a Spanish American War monument to U.S. Marines? The account of the gun is a long story with some gaps that can only be filled in with conjecture. The gun proclaims its origins in very clear terms. Inscriptions near the breech of the gun state that the weapon was the work of Swiss gunmaker Jean Martiz and was cast on March 23, 1748, at Douai, France. There were two gunmakers by that name, father and son. Since Jean Martiz, the elder, died in 1743, this gun must be the work of Jean Martiz, the younger. His father is credited with creating the revolutionary method of boring cannons. Previous to the elder Martiz’s work, a cannon’s bore was created by casting the gun around a spindle which had to be removed, and which would often move during the casting process. Maritz’s boring machine was innovative in that, first, the gun barrel was rotated around the boring bit, and secondly because it was done in a horizontal, rather than vertical, manner. These concepts made boring practical and resulted in a superior cannon bore that was smoother, straighter and often more centered than those created by the spindle method and earlier attempts at boring. Martiz, the son, followed in his famous father’s footsteps, and entered the field of gunmaking. He became an expert in his own right, a fact to which the gun on the monument bears strong witness. Martiz’s gun is a fine example of the 18th Century French Valliere system of artillery. In 1732, General Valliere, the head of the French artillery, standardized the French gun calibers, and also devised a way in which even the most uneducated artillerist could quickly determine the caliber of a gun. The breech of each caliber of gun was given a face. The breech of the 4-pounder depicted a face in a sunburst; the 8-pounder, a monkey’s face; the 12-pounder, a rooster’s face; and the 16pounder, the face of Medusa. The breech of the gun atop the monument depicts the gaping maw of Bacchus, the Greek god of wine. His face, surrounded by stylized leaves, has a large clubThe monument to the First Marine B at U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Ba y. The U.S. flag waves proudly above the monument to the First Marine Battalion who fought here in 1898.

This face of Bacchus signifies a gun of the largest caliber of the Valliere system – a 24-pound siege gun. Inscriptions on the gun at Guantanamo give more of the weapon’s history. It was individually named, and was called “Le Bourbon (the Bourbon).” It was dedicated to Valliere’s successor, Louis Charles de Bourbon, the Count d’Eu and Duke of Aumale, who served as the head of the French artillery from 1736 to 1755. The gun also bears the standard quotations of “Ultima Ratio Regum (The Last Argument of Kings)” and “Nec Pluribus Impar (Not Unequal to Many),” an awkward way of stating that the king was superior to most everyone. Lastly, prominent among the many raised images of cannon, shields, war drums, and fleur de lys, etc., is the image of a sunburst, with a face at its center. This is a graphic reference to dynasty of the Sun King, Louis XIV. The Sun King has passed from his earthly realm in 1715, with his position occupied by Louis XV when the cannon was cast. The gun measures 13-feet, 7-inches, from the muzzle to the end of Bacchus’ club-shaped cascable, and is nearly 18 inches in diameter at the breech. The cascable itself, the club projecting from Bacchus’ mouth, is 10 inches long. The gun’s trunnion indicates that it weighs 5730 livres, or medieval French pounds. That translates to approximately 6,184 modern English pounds – more than three tons. How the massive gun came to be in Cuba is a bit of a mystery. There are several possibilities. First, it could have been brought to the island during the French and Indian War (1754–1763), when there was cooperation between the Spanish and French monarchies, both ruled by branches of the Bourbon family. It could have arrived during a similar period of Spanish and French co-operation during the American Revolution when a combined Spanish and French military force attacked Pensacola, Florida in 1781. However, the gun could also have been brought by French forces fleeing the revolution in Haiti in the beginning of the 19th century, or been brought during the time of the Napoleonic Empire (1799-1815), which controlled both Spain and France. The McCalla Hill gun seems to surface again in 1898, though the Spanish American War era placement of the gun is clouded in the mists of time. It could be from a small battery that defended Caimanera, in Guantanamo Bay. It is more likely that it found itself at Fort Toro, a Spanish fortification which got its name from its location on North Toro Cay, also within Guantanamo Bay. The small fort, which mounted as many as six muzzle-loading cannon, opposed the U.S. Navy’s incursions into the bay, firing when American ships came within range. Finally, on June 15, 1898, the Battleship Texas the cruiser Marblehead and gunboat Suwanee were given orders to destroy the harassing fortification. The American vessels approached and opened The breech of the cannon bears the face of Bacchas, the Greek god of wine and fertility, and in artillery language, signifies a gun of the largest caliber of the Valliere system — a 24-pound siege gun.

The naval vessels continued to pound the fort for an additional half hour, dismounting the fort’s guns. As the Spanish American War drew to a close, the Americans began to gather the antiquated guns located in the various Spanish fortifications, such as those at Santiago and Fort Toro, to be shipped to the U.S. as war trophies. In November 1898, before the war had officially ended, the Navy had already requested that three guns of the type found at Fort Toro to be brought to the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis for display. However, before any guns could officially be retrieved from Fort Toro, the crew of the Store Ship Glacier landed and confiscated “two of the finest pieces of bronze cannon” at the fort. Notified of their action by British Consul, the American commander at Guantanamo went to investigate. At first, the officers and crew refused to admit they had the guns, though, when presented with the evidence, did admit to taking them, stating that they had done so for the Secretary of the Navy. The Glacier’s commander refused to give further details such as if he was doing so at the personal direction of the Secretary, etc. The final disposition of the guns was left to await the orders of the Navy. The following year, in June 1899, the patrol boat Eagle was sent on a survey mission into Guantanamo Bay. As part of its work, it called at Fort Toro and was tasked to remove a number of the guns, apparently two, which were brought north. The guns, however,From directly overhead, the breech of the cannon shows the images of flags and war drums, and at the base, the inscription identifying Jean Maritz as the gunmaker.were not delivered to Annapolis, but were carried to Navy Yard at Portsmouth, N.H. In spite of the original request, none of the guns ever made it to Annapolis. After arriving at Portsmouth, it seems that there was no immediate plans for what to do with the guns. One was offered to the city of Bangor and another to the state of Maine. However, not all of Fort Toro’s guns appear to have been taken north by the Eagle It is believed that at least one of the guns that was left behind eventually found its way to become part of the First Marine Battalion monument on McCalla Hill. This gun does not appear on any of the lists of guns recovered from Santiago and is not one of the Fort Toro guns known to have been taken to Portsmouth. Its origins are a mystery. However, knowing that Fort Toro was in Guantanamo Bay, and knowing that several guns from the fort are unaccounted for, the belief that the gun on the monument is from Fort Toro is quite reasonable. In fact, what makes Fort Toro the most likely source are the actions of the crew of the Glacier If relieved of their salvaged guns, it is likely that the Glacier ’s crew would have returned them to the abandoned fort, perhaps delivering them to the commander at Guantanamo who had gone to the Glacier in search of them. The large and ornate McCalla Hill gun certainly fits the description of one of “the finest pieces of bronze cannon” as the Glacier ’s salvaged guns were described. Regardless, in February 1906, the monument on McCalla Hill, crowned by the ornate siege gun, was dedicated to the Marines who lost their lives to gain the land now occupied by one of the U.S.’ most famous naval bases. The gun, cast by a Swiss gunmaker for the French, eventually serving the Spanish and believed to have seen action against the U.S. Navy, is now part of a monument to the dead of the nation against which it fired its last shot.Cannon on McCalla Hill monument to First Marine Battalion ...Continued from page 5 Memorial Day Ceremony Monday, May 28 All are invited to attend the Memorial Day ceremony at Cuzco Wells Cemetary.
