Hello everybody,
I have a train that runs thru my battlefield, well  its static,  it just sits I thought I would do something with it. I might incorporate this piece into my table...somehow.

A small Confederate artillery unit blasting away

I put this together a few days ago...sort of buried it in the fields.

Confederate campsite

I took a few shots of this since I relocated it to another part of the field, and I thought I would share this one with you.

Thaddeus Lowe and the Atlantic

Thaddeus Lowe and John LaMountain both carried out reconnaissance activities for the Union army during the war. On September 24th 1861, Lowe ascended to more than 1000 feet near Arlington Virginia, across the Potomac from Washington DC and began telegraphing intelligence on the Confederate troops located at Falls Church, Virginia more than three miles away. Union guns were aimed and fired accurately at the Confederate troops without actually being able to see them-a first in the history of warfare.
