Questions for Photos 3 and 4

1. Compare the raised and lowered positions of the guns at Battery Granger with those at Battery Potter shown in Photos 1 and 2. How did the two systems differ?

2. What do you think the men in Photo 3 are doing? What do you think the men in Photo 4 are doing?

3. When might these photos have been taken? On what do you base your answer?

* The photos on this screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high quality version of Photo 3 and Photo 4, but be aware that each file will take as much as 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
