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.
