Professor Lowe's Balloon in Fair Oaks, Virginia
This photograph was taken in May, 1862 near Fair Oaks Virginia. This is another picture of Professor Lowe's balloon, the Intrepid. Like the earlier picture, this one has a number of men on the ground. It looks like it took a dozen or so people to support the balloon launch.
