- Dec 13, 2006Dear Scott,
What specifically do you need? I have a typescript of a letter (copy
of the actual letter at Antietam NBP) written by Capt WT March of the
4th NC to a cousin just as the Maryland Campaign began.

passport to any foreign country, and a benediction from the Almighty

Due to the great feedback on my new "Human Interest Stories of the
Gettysburg Campaign," (amazon.com), I am 75% of the way completed
with its companion volume, "Antietam Anecdotes: Human Interest
Stories of the Maryland Campaign." This latter work will be around
100 pages with a vast collection of stories, anecdotes, and snippets
culled and collected from a wide array of primary sources.
What I am asking is that if any of you have access to primary
accounts from the campaign that you think are worthy of inclusion,
please contact me off-line at scottmingus@.... I am primarily
interested in humorous incidents or unusual occurrences that are
documented by eyewitnesses and are from sources prior to 1920 (in
other words, materials that are out of copyright and can be reused or
edited freely into my writing style).
Feel free point me to any leads you may have, as it occurred to me
that this august body would have access to even more material than I
Thanks in advance for your consideration of this Antietam request.
