Youngstown leaders hope to learn from Gettysburg ghosts
– A group from the Air Force Reserve’s 910th Airlift Wing, based at Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, pose for a tintype photograph at a Civil War reenactor encampment here, July 1, 2017, during a staff ride designed to show examples of leadership that took place during the three-day Civil War battle in 1863. The practice of staff rides was started by the U.S. Army in 1906 to help provide practical studies into tactics, leadership, communication and terrain. Tintypes were a civil war era photography technology using a bellows-style camera, metal plates, cyanide and water to develop the image.
