I besieged Ft. Pickens for an entire year with a full division and a pair of siege batteries. Made numerous breaches, only to have them constantly repaired by the garrison. Finally assaulted the place, and took horrendous losses doing so. That's an attack with a full division vs. 1x garrison regime...

As for the other line, it looks to me to me far enough west of Purdy so as it should not enter the province.

You might want to remove that whole section through Lebanon to Mt. Vernon in Kentucky as well.

The route the railroad follows was a macadamized road as fa...
