    Quaker Guns near Manassas, VA.  During the initial stages of the Civil War, before First Manassas (Bull Run), the Confederate forces knew that the Federal troops were watching them from balloons in Alexandria.  In order to fool the Federal troops that they were heavier fortified than they really were, they used "Quaker Guns" which were chopped down tree trunks, and painted them black and pretended they were cannon.

    Sculptor, Leonard Volk's, casting of Lincoln's hands shortly after Lincoln won the nomination as the Republican Presidential Candidate. Volk asked Lincoln to hold something to simulate grasping a document in his right hand. Lincoln came back from his tool shed with a whittled piece of a broom handle. The casting for the right hand was made as he held the whittled handle. His left hand was cast slightly closed.
