      Dear Paula,

      I do not know if it would be helpful, but Kathleen Ernst some
      years ago published a book "Too Afraid to Cry: Maryland Civilians
      in the Civil War". Among the topics covered is the extent of
      hospitals in place after the Battle of Sharpsburg, including in
      Frederick.
