Description

This is a photograph of a buck saw, which was in use from the 1840s until the early 20th century. It is used for cutting wood. During the Civil War era farmers would cut wood to sell for extra income, usually during the winter. In the Graham letter (GC1) from Agnes to her brother, the process of cutting logs and rail timbers for use around the farm is described.
