    Nice! There are some nice views from Bolivar Heights as well. What I never realized until this past weekend, was that all these years I've missed the fact that I had never been to an area down the west slope of Bolivar Heights. Never even realized there were cannons down in the field also pointing west (on Route 27 - or Bakerton Rd). On the below picture, you can see the obvious dirt path around Bolivar Heights, but what I'm referring to is the field on the west side of the trees at Bolivar Heights. Did you guys venture down to that side of the battlefield? From this picture there doesn't seem to be cannons on the battlefield, but my wife and I just drove past there this past weekend as we traced the A.P. Hill march in reverse from Sharpsburg to Harper's Ferry.

    Pontoon bridges have been used since time immemorial, and it is said that the original London Bridge was a pontoon bridge built by the Romans. Continuing this tradition, the Union erected a pontoon bridge of their own at the base of the Harper's Ferry Peninsula, using an opening in the Armory grounds' river wall to connect both sides. The fiery Colonel Benjamin "Grimes" Davis convinced the aging General Miles to allow 1,300 cavalry of the besieged Union forces to try and escape using the pontoon bridge through Confederate lines during the night of September 14th. He was successful, taking out or avoiding the Rebel pickets, the lines of which had been thinned due to the exposure of the flank at Crampton's Gap. Davis also managed to use his native Mississippian accent to convince the head of a ninety-one long Confederate ordinance wagon train to take his forces as escorts. It wasn't until morning that the wagon drivers were surprised that their escorts had pistols trained on each one of them!

    Below is a screenshot of a "what if?" scenario (direct CSA attack on the town itself).

    I love that story of the cavalry's escape, i busted out laughing when the wagon drivers realized who was escorting them.

    I would belive if the CSA had assaulted via the pontoon bridge many men of the south would be decorating it with their liveless corpses.

    I can see people getting absolutely mown down on those bridges. Cannot wait for this stuff to be implemented, should lead to some very interesting attack/defend Gameplay.
