      Dear Richard,

      The tower was put at its present site back in 1898, IIRC, by the War Dept. I
      think the view of the Bloody Lane did not go all the way up to the Tower or
      else the photo for the postcard was taken from the Tower.

      Very respectfully,
      G E "Gerry" Mayers
      Confederate Signal Corps,
      Longstreet's Corps
