Wagon Week is underway here at OPOD. This picture was taken in 1864 near Petersburg, Virginia. Pictured is a telegraph wagon from the Civil War. Interesting to note the"ghost like" figure in the left of the image. These old photographs required very long exposure times, so faint image was probably from a person who was standing there, and then walked out of the field of view during the exposure.
