1111Re: [TalkAntietam] Hartwig's talk on Iron Brigade
- Feb 7, 2003Tom,
Great post about Scott's talk. However, the time of when the
Iron Brigade began advancing seems a little odd to me,
particularly when most accounts state the Federal advance
began at first light, which would be between 5.30 and 6.00
am.... South Mountain is the largest geographical block to
the sun in the morning in that area, as you well know.
