Pilot Knob

In my browsing for items on the Iron Mntn RR, kept encountering the battle at Pilot Knob, the rail-head for the RR at that time.

Interesting reading and going back thru their links will lead you to a wealth of Civil War battle descriptions.

Tacked on a couple of stray RR related articles. http://www.civilwarhome.com/pilotknob.htm http://www.rosecity.net/trains/picture4.html http://www.umr.edu/~whmcinfo/shelf1/r003/
