June 23, 1863

Still doing the area forging for goods,  the solders crossed the river at this location to enter Hancock.  Facing South, this picture of the crossing was taken from the City side just below the C&O canal by Steve French who was kind enough to be a guide with me and help take these pictures.  Steve knows this area like the back of his hand.



Another view.



This is the city culvert built under the C&O canal.  Imboden rode through the culvert to gain entry into the city. Later there was a hole punched in it to drain the canal down.
