Last September Betsy’s son Jeff and I visited the old Western & Atlantic Railroad Tunnel in Tunnel Hill, Georgia.  The 1,477 foot-long tunnel was constructed by hand between 1848 and 1850.  After walking through the tunnel (no longer in use) we came upon this scene at the eastern entrance

The picture on which this drawing was based is shown below.
