A Little History About Burlap Bags — 3 Comments

  1. I don’t think so, but many things are possible….I have been studying the photographs for the past 45+ years and have not seen ANY in all the images…..what WAS used were WICKER GABIONS…..aka rollable “baskets” filled with strips / slats of wood [by the appearance]….for an EXCELLENT example, see:
    Photographic History of the Civil War, F.T. Miller, 10 Volumes, 1911 [often referred to simply as “Millers”]
    SPECIFICALLY Volume 5 [V], page 207, 209, and 211[EXTENSIVELY used at Ft. Sumter]….regards dave
