2152RE: [TalkAntietam] Lincoln and McClellan during the Maryland Campaign

Apparently, the papers themselves have become hopelessly disordered.
The selected (keep in mind, it is selected) correspondence in "The Civil War
Paper of George B.McClellan" are not all copied from original documents.
Much of the personal correspondence between the general and his wife are
copied from notes taken by McClellan regarding those letters, and sometimes
even notes of McClellan's notes taken by his daughter.
I would check the newer works by Rafuse and Beatie for the sources they
