By Capt J.C. Duane 1862
Found this at used book store, leafed though a little and knew I found a gem. Been wanting, and slowly getting up everything to make a ponton train for my Napoleonic troops.
I doubt much could be different 40 years previous to this book.
It also has sections on siege and artillery fortifications



Just need to make planking sections and anchor lines
