The official description to the below 1864 photograph:
- Destruction of Hood's Ordinance Train, American Civil War, 1864. Taken by George N. Barnard (American, 1819 - 1902); Atlanta, Georgia, United States. Albumen silver print. When the Confederate Army abandoned Atlanta, they set a train filled with gunpowder on fire, resulting in enormous explosions. They wanted to keep the gunpowder out of Union hands.
- Where did the train go? Evaporated?
- Why are them train wheels arranged in this bizarre fashion? The only guess of mine would consist of those cars being made entirely out of wood.
- Any opinions?
