Object Name:
U.S. Army Ration Cart
Description:
This Army Cart is painted olive drab green and built very strong. It is built much like the U. S. Army Four Mule Escort Wagon only shorter. It is built for one animal to pull it with the large shafts with and added single tree that an extra animal could be hitched up if needed. It has a very heavy brake to hold the cart from rolling when the two legs are down to hold the cart level when the animal pulling it is unhooked. This is a very rare piece and most of these ration carts went to France during World War One. They used these carts to haul food to the soldiers on the battle field.
