Subject: Signal Images Re-Discover'd
I was browsing a book store the other day and came upon two drawings of signal stations I had never seen before.|
One of the images was a pencil sketch of Sherman on Kenisaw [sic] Mtn. with the signal officer training his glass on Alatoona Pass from within an earthen gun port while the flagman surmounted the parapet at the Kenesaw station.
Owing to other business, I had to leave out of the shop in quick order so I couldn't get the image sources. I'll make my rounds once more and take a more careful gander of the endnote details.
You know this is really great! I've studied 1860's field communications for over twenty years and can tell you that I can never seem to get my fill of it.
