"Army Blacksmith and Forge, Antietam, Sept., 1862"
Each battery of artillery and each squadron of cavalry were provided with a forge, mounted on heavy wheels. This forge travelled with the army, and the artificer in charge of the forge attended to shoeing the horses, and repairing the iron-work of the gun-carriages and baggage-wagons.
