  1. You can find a thorough overview of the activities of the Federal Balloon Corps during the Civil War in my book THE BALLOONIST, The Story of T. S. C. Lowe; Inventor, Scientist, Magician, and Father of the U. S. Air Force. This book, ISBN 978-1-929490-27-1 can be found in most libraries and bookstores, or ordered online.
