    Default Battery wagon tool chests

    Gentlemen,
    Do any of you happen to know where I can find images of the tool chests from the battery wagons? I have the description and dimensions from the 1864 Field Artillery Tactics, but a picture would be nice to be sure I'm making them correctly.
    Thanks,

    I have been reading about them in the ordnance manual. It is hard to visualize the inside looped leather handles and the loose fitting covers. If you find any info please post it here.
