      Dear Brian and James,

      The other thing you want to remember is the Antietam Creek at the
      Bridge does NOT look as if did in 1862! The banks originally were
      NOT any wheres as steep looking as they are now. the banks of the
      creek originally were a very gently sloping grade which also
      meant the creek often overflowed when there was heavy rain.

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

      "It is Well that WAR is so Terrible;
      else we shall grow too fond of it."
