A Cannon For Madero
Shooting Times Magazine     November 1988
On a seemingly uneventful April night in 1911, a muzzleloading cannon mysteriously disappeared from its resting place in a plaza in El Paso, Texas. Called the "McGinty" cannon, this formidable piece of artillery was destined to play an important part in several bloody battles of the Mexican Revolution. The mastermind behind its hyjacking was Dr. Ira J. Bush, a bigger-than-life hero known to Bill Jordan as "Uncle Doc."     by Bill Jordan

Shooting Times Magazine has not given permission for us to quote their 1988 article. I have hopes that this will happen soon.
