In your bibliographical listing below you cite a Crampton's Gap book
(mine) with "occasional errors." If legitimate, it would be helpful
to know what these are so I can address them. Please specify.
Mr. Reese, it is indeed an honor to correspond with you. It has been about 18
months since I read your book and it may take a little time for me to locate
the points upon which I found dispute. I recall Mark Majors helped you with
your data about the 96th PA. Mark is a great resource on that regiment and you
did well by utilizing his assistance. I shall try to revisit the subject as
soon as time permits. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed your book and thought it a
great micro-history of the actions surrounding Crampton's Gap. The only other
resource I found useful has been the Blue & Gray issue on the battle. Hopefully I
marked the text which I found disputable.
My thanks for being a member of this group. Your recent comments and info
about the South Mtn battlefield have caused me and others unexpected concern
regarding it's future. Keep us informed as events warrant.
