Brigadier General of Engineers, Ian McKay
In this picture, Brig. Ian Mckay, Chief of Staff to Lt. General U.S. Grant, is talking with the crowd of spectators, explaining a few basic elements of the massed artillery behind him. This particular photo was taken at an event in Western Connecticut early in the season. Ian McKay usually is asked to narrate to the spectators about the equipment and tactics that they are seeing on the field, since much of it is known well only to the few who study such.
