"It wasn't much of a fight," reports Major Thomas Woodrow, the commander of our troops -- "they're more like our quartermasters than enemy cavalry. Some of them can hardly sit on a horse. As they were running, one of them was actually whipping his horse and screaming 'more steam!' Foolishness. You can't win a war if you think like a mechanic instead of a soldier."
I'm fairly certain there weren't any ground steam powered vehicles during the Civil War. I think the Iron Clads (Sorta submarine type things) were developed near the end, but beyond that I don't remember any sort of steam powered attack things.
