      Fitzhugh Lee on 13/14 September crossed the Catoctins at Hamburg Pass
      according to Carman after riding north from Shookstown. Is this pass
      now the location of Hamburg Road heading northwest from Yellow Springs?
      From a modern map, it looks like Yellow Springs Road becomes Hamburg
      Road as it crosses Catoctin Mountain.

      Hamburg Gap is in South Mountain about three miles north of Turner's
      Gap according to Harsh. It seems that this could be confusing. But
      might Lee have then also passed through Hamburg Gap and then south to
      Boonsboro on the 14th?
