      While researching the type of corn planting in the fields around Sharpsburg
      for the Antietam documentary it was determined that the area farmers used the
      "mounds spaced evenly apart" technique. That is, the "row's" were evenly
      spaced in all directions. This is thinner than today's typical row planting
      or what some farmer in pennsylvania may have done. The points made about the
      devastation due to the firing bear more weight on the amount of cover.
