      David,

      Corn planting patterns were different in 1862, not nearly as
      dense, with rows being wide enough for a horse to move between.
       
      Not So!
      Once the corn is planted a horse never goes into the field. Plowing and planting is usually done with a team of horses, not one.
       
      Amish farmers in PA still use horses and mules and their rows are tighter than those of farmers using tractors.
       
       O.G.
