Two of the thirty-two 24 pounder long-guns, the main armament of the USS President. Even though the USS President was classified as a 44 gun Frigate, she was initially armed with 32 24-pdr cannon and 22 12-pdr cannon. The 12-pdr long-guns were later replaced by 42-pdr carronades.

American gunners often named their cannon with an engraved copper plaque of some sort, with names such as 'Spitfire', 'Yankee Protection', 'Polly', 'Liberty Forever' or 'Bunker Hill'.
