Split-Rail Fence, The Battle of Saratoga 1777, Drums Along the Mohawk
A split-rail fence or log fence (also known as a zigzag fence, worm fence, or snake fence historically due to its meandering layout) is a type of fence constructed in the United States and Canada, and is made out of timber logs, usually split lengthwise into rails and typically used for agricultural or decorative fencing. Such fences require much more timber than other types of fences, and so are generally only common in areas where wood is abundant. However, they are very simple in their construction, and can be assembled with few tools even on hard or rocky ground. They also can be built without using any nails or other hardware; such hardware was often scarce in frontier areas. They are particularly popular in very rocky areas where post hole digging is almost impossible. They can even be partially or wholly disassembled if the fence needs to be moved or the wood becomes more useful for other purposes.
Two sets can be joined together using the separate rails to create one long continuous fence.
Dimensions of fence: 15” x 2 ½” x 3 ½”
