How far could an army march in a day? | Civil War History ...

Posted: (3 days ago) A question I'm looking into. So far I've seen estimates saying that 10-15 miles (or 16-24 km) in a day was normal. 20-25 miles is pushing it, and marching 30 would exhaust an army. So does that seem about right? If not what were the norms. This of course bars things like Jackson's 'Foot...

Union Mortar rafts | The Naval War | American Civil War Forums

Posted: (15 days ago) NOTE: I have the greatest respect for Dr. Tucker, but I could find no evidence that his description of the Union mortar schooner aiming turntable applied to the Union mortar boat/scow/raft. The only high-angle photo that I have found (see earlier post) shows the mortar sitting off centerline on an anchored boat, which does not square with the idea of a fixed turntable.
