I might be fussier if I hadn't introduced so many errors into the original post.

Here's a shot of one of them about to unload a ship.

It has nothing to do with the civil war, but it is (was) right in that time period.

For that time period it wasn't all that small. Fresh seafood brought in daily, lots of hotels, banks, people coming from all around to work there. Obviously it was in more than that field, but the field held a lot of the major buildings.

Nope, not by the sea, which is what made bringing fresh seafood in daily so unusual, but there was a lot of money in the town.

Not in NY.

was it Boston? dang, I don't know my geography esp. along the eastern seaboard and my atlas isn't handy...born and raised along the Gulf Coast.........Pacanis, is this a memorial site of some kind and/or was there a natural disaster that's precipitated this empty field that may be a memorial of some sort.......looks like a church might have been there or a house............

As much as I'd like to say it used to be the city of Boston..... Just jokin' guys (Bostonians), honest

expat, it's not on the eastern seaboard, it's not a memorial, no natural disaster caused the town to disappear. it was established one year and gone three years later. Worth 2 mil one year, and sold for $4.37 thirteen years later.
