If you had to participate in a Civil War march, what would be your preferred method of 19th Century military transportation?
Horse, mule, supply wagon, ambulance, etc.
(Or just walking)
Ship! Or boat.
Walking … but only at the head of the column — less dust!
an elephant in armor, carrying a catapalt, guarded by Maori warriors shooting poisonous darts.
Pullman luxury railroad car (like the one at Robert Lincoln”s Hildene home)
Horse, why walk. Also cavalry has all those cool accoutrements.
I take it back… Balloon!
Why not both? https://hdl.huntington.org/digital/collection/p16003coll4/id/1840
Horse. All the way. I wouldn’t even care about being saddle sore. Anything but walking!
Mule. Channel my inner Festus Haggen.
