People couldn't fly,
Until thoughts of balloons came by,
Balloons were used in wars,
And then for tours,
Then for science on air,
People died up there,
That is the history of balloons,
are you or aren't you still a baboon on balloons.
By Jules Verne
"Anything one man can imagine
other men can make real."
The Civil War in America as the
viewed the battle from the air.
