4557Re: [TalkAntietam] Regiments Brigaded Together
- Mar 25, 2008Dean,
With the exception you mentioned of some very small Confederate brigades, I don't think there are any other "combined regiments" at Antietam.
BTW, some Union brigades were pretty small too, Phelps took no more than 425 men into the fight.

Unfurl those Colors makes a point of talking about the delicate nature of regiments
combining under one commander (essentially to fight as one regiment) and uses the example
of the 61 and 64 NY under Barlow.
As such, a lot of this is under the radar, so to speak, is anybody aware of any other such
brigaded regiments? On either side? at Antietam.
Naturally, some of the Confederate brigades that contained very, very few men would
automatically become essentially regiments for drill purposes. That's a different matter than
what I'm trying to find.
Basically, I'm trying to find regimental pairs that operated under one of the two colonels.
