3022Re: re Battlefield off beaten path sites and question
- May 30, 2006After I posted my first message about Schell, I noticed John M. Priest
includes this incident in his Antietam book. Priest says that Frank
Schell sketched the wounded Confederate and his dead father shortly
after the artist "crossed the left of the 21 Georgia's former line"
(page 167). The 21st GA, part of Trimble's [Walker's] brigade, had
been sent forward to shore up Lawton and Ripley's line between Mumma's
lane and the Cornfield.
