      Dear Richard,

      It looks as if you beat me to it! I have been working for several years on a fiction book version of the Maryland Campaign but from the Confederate side of affairs!

      Who is publishing your book?

      I remain,
      Your Humble and Obdt. Servant,
      G. E. "Gerry" Mayers
      Confederate Signal Corps, Longstreet's Corps
