Shipping Note: same 

The lumber barons were men who financed nearly every element of the industry and profited handsomely from it.  Timber and lumber were BIG business during this time period (1850-90).  The Timber cruisers were sent out to various forests throughout Michigan.  These men would survey the area and mark the trees to be cut.  The shanty boys then traveled to the forests, set up a camp, and began the work of felling and moving pines.  The term river hog refers to the men who would travel down the waterways on top of the logs to guide and keep all from getting jammed.  This job was extremely dangerous.  Their destination was the saw mill.   Once here the timber was cut in to lumber and loaded on boats and trains to travel nationwide.  The Red Sash Brigade wanted to prohibit alcohol consumption in the camps and within the communities that grew up around this industry.  For WPC we took the buzz from the beverage.
