The year is 1863. Somehow, the American Civil War and locomotives just seem to go together like green eggs and ham. Today we’re featuring the General Haupt military engine, named for Herman Haupt, who was given command of the United States Military Railroad that year. Haupt ran his operations from Alexandria, and so, it’s only natural that The Gemneral Haupt engine was photographed in the Virginia countryside. This is a particular favorite Civil War locomotive photo, due to its image clarity. It was just begging to be colorized – and has led to a very realistic color image.
