U.S. Army Escort Wagon

Recommended Posts

I posted this about 3-4 years ago after pulling it out of a Horse farm in central Florida.. I finished the restoration last Nov just in time for our local Veterans Day display. Hopefully the MOD's will leave it here in the WW1 section.


U.S. Army Escort Wagon, built in Jan 1917 by the Piedmont Wagon Company, Hickory N.C.

That is great. You need a couple of horses and a driver for the next parade in town.

Can you post some pictures of what it looked like before you started restoration?
