Description
Photograph of an exterior view of U.S. Army Quartermaster Headquarters and the Town Hall in Wilmington, 1862. Debris and an unhitched palate cart stand in the foreground in the dusty yard. Behind them, wooden scaffolding stands in front of a double-doored building with tall windows and clapboard siding and a flagpole extending from the roof, likely Town Hall. Longer, less decorated wooden buildings stand to the right, the second, darker building at the far right positioned at a right angle to the others
this appears to be a stable of some sort.
