Civil War
About this creation
The United States Civil War saw the first use of railways for military purposes and tactics that have repeated ever since, supply, destruction of supply, and mounting artillery on rail.

   This Union mortar was a typical use. Designed to be pushed in front of a locomotive. Crew shielding was improvised from available material.

   It shares with itís heavier cousins in later wars the need for a massive under frame and a limited traverse.

   The war was also saw the first attempts of disrupting the enemies supply lines. This tactic was particularly used by the confederate forces who by comparison used the rail lines less than the Union forces. Small parties could easily remove a few rails or burn a few ties crippling a rail line. Much of the southern rail was ripped up to provide iron for armor and other uses.

Looks pretty good, and a lot like the real thing in the photo. Check out my Gettysburg Seminary building if you get the chance.
