Subject: Signal Research and Development
Switching from night to day signals, I've run across an entry I hadn't seen for some time in Henry Scott's 1864 Military Dictionary, p. 559 having to do with a Mr. Galton's hand heliostat (mirror) for signalling purposes. I think MOA has the 61 edition of of Sccott's.
Also in Captain (later General) Randolph B. Marcy's "Prairie Traveler" P. 226-229 (which we also have up on our SCA/SCARD site) there's a lenghty description of telegraphing by day smokes. If I'm not mistaken, I think that Ol' Probabilities even mentions Marcy's work in one of his early manuals if not the '64 edition itself.
