Excellent information, that helps me spot the trains on the map.
The artillery problem is an issue I'll need to resolve. I don't recall Reilly (who at least
mentioned going back to look) or anyone else suggesting they had to ford the Potomac to
get a re-supply of artillery ammunition. So, this indirectly suggests that what stocks they
had available were in the Md side trains.
Leaving me wondering what it was Lee was protecting across the river.
Do you know of any other battery commanders recollections about the rather mundane
matters of ammunition resupply on that day?
