Description

This is a photograph of a cast iron coal stove manufactured by the Indiana Iron Works, ca. 1844-1863. Coal as a fuel to heat homes was not used very often during the Civil War period except in those areas that had deposits of coal, including Pennsylvania, which als made use of it in its growing iron industry. It was also used as fuel for trains. Source: Gates, Paul W. The Impact of the Civil War: Agriculture and the Civil War. Ed. Nevins, Allan. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, Inc, 1965. Print.
