Tents (or other shelters):
2. Sibley: conical tent with an opening at the top so that a stove pipe could be accommodated. Sleeps 6-8.
3. There was also a large, rectangular tent that slept 8, or one Commanding Officer.
4. For winter encampment, a wood floor and short walls would serve as a foundation for the rectangular tent. A stove would be placed in the middle of the floor for heating.
5. If the winter encampment was in a heavily wooded area, log cabins would be built. High ranking officers (colonels and generals) could requisition a farm house for quarters.
