U.S. Army Escort Wagon
The very first subscription to SFJ was purchased by our dear friends Gary and Kathy Showalter. Gary has passed on and his widow, Kathy, is offering their treasure for sale. The world was made a better place because of the Showalters.
This numbered, all original U.S. Army Escort Wagon is available. It is in exceptional condition, formerly displayed at the Lewis Army Museum on Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Call 360-695-7628.
Note the sarven hubs and the California style box. The lower front box was suitable for carrying cannon balls. The Army wagon, also referred to as an Escort wagon, was traditionally pulled by 4-6 mules and was capable of carrying 3000 pounds. At the height of its utility during the Spanish-American War, the Army-Escort Wagon transported military troops, rations and gear. Parade and museum worthy.
