4284Re: [TalkAntietam] Re: Regimental numbers during the Maryland Campaign
- Feb 12, 2008Cav numbers are pretty sketchy. Priest gives 4320 for
the division. The park had nothing. So, my cav numbers
are estimates at best... if you have anything harder,
I'd love to see them.
For weapons, (all data from Todd):
8 Ill, 3 Ind, 4 Penn, 1 NY, 12 Penn, 8 NY, 3 Penn, 1
Maine all with Carbines of various types
1 Mass, 15 Penn are armed with pistols.
(I listed all of the ones I had data on, it obviously
includes some units that weren't in the battle.)
The horse artillery is easier:
A, 2 US--6x Napoleons
B&L, 2 US--4x Napoleons
M, 2 US--6x Rifles
C&G, 3 US--6x Rifles
These are all from the Paul Chiles B&G article.
I have a scattering of weapon data for the various HQ
The Rebel information is about the same level.
4500 total for the Cav division (Carmen)
1 NC, 1 VA, 3 VA, 4 VA, 5 VA, 2 VA, 12 VA with pistols
2 NC, 7 VA, Cobb Legion with rifles (2 NC also listed
Batteries (info from Anderson):
Hart SC (4x rifles w/o ammo at Boteler's Ford)
Pelham (8x guns, two 4-gun sections, various gun types
Chew Va 3x Rifles, 1x Napoleon
(There is a story to go with the Napoleon in Chew's
Battery... something along the lines of they had it
for a period of the war but found it to be too heavy
to keep up with the cavalry and eventually (before
Gettysburg?) got rid of it.)
Hope that helps.
