Subject: Signal Towers at the 155th Bull Run

Message Detail:
I can't lay my hands on the quote just now but somewhere in the back of my mind I remember reading that the Confederates had a three-poster structure at First Manassas that would have most likely supported a triangular platform. Whether it was a signal platform or a two-tier I wouldn't know. That info would have come from the recollections of E.P. Alexander.

Artist Alfred Waud's depiction of a three-poster can be found at our very own Signal Corps Association's site in the link below.

As E. P. Alexander might have said at the time... "Look to your left" Then look up. 5-5-5
