After the war, Lowe became a noted inventor and entrepreneur. He devised a new process for manufacturing artificial ice in 1866, and in 1873 he developed a manufacturing process that greatly improved the use of gaslight illumination. He also introduced new processes in the steelmaking industry and financed the construction of an observatory and an electric railway in California. In the late 1890s, however, Lowe experienced financial difficulties that dogged him for the rest of his life. He died in California in 1913.
D2 Musketeer, King's Oxford Army, 643 This soldier wears a 'Powder-Bag' containing paper cartridges with a flask containing priming powder suspended beneath it. These were issued as a temporary expedient to overcome a shortage of bandoleers. A11 order for the delivery of stores for the manufacture of these powder-bags shows that they were made of 'Calfe skinns tanned and oyled'. His uniform coat, breeches and montero cap are part of the issue of 1643 provided by the entrepreneur Thomas Bushell who reclothed the Oxford infantry in suits of all-red or all-blue.
Today Fredericksburg lies on the banks of a sluggish river. Where frames of burned and shell-shattered buildings stood in the winter of 1862 and spring of 1863 lie scores of small businesses. The visitor center in downtown Fredericksburg is almost surrounded by tourist businesses. Antique shops dot the areas where shells landed coffee shops and used book stores cover the ground where Early opposed Sedgwick's advance before withdrawing. At Marye's Heights, the Fredericksburg Battlefield Museum sits below the crest of the hill near the stone wall and overlooks the riverbank.
Browne was really more of an entrepreneur than a craftsman but he certainly experimented with guns and was awarded a prize of 200 for helping to make iron guns less weighty for the navy. I Iowever, how he did this has been lost to us. There were several members of the Browne family who cast guns in bronze and iron. A second family worth mentioning was the Pitt dynasty that was based in Houndsditch in London. Henry Pitt worked within the Tower of London and the two younger Pitts, son and nephew (both called Richard), were certainly casting during the Civil War. When King Charles moved to Oxford, one of the first things he did was to attempt to create a gun f oundry at Frewin Hall so that he would not be reliant upon foreign imports. If we add to this the many foreign gunfounders and merchants supplying equipment to the King and Parliament we can see that there would have been a great deal of variation in the armament of both sides during this conflict.
