4590Hamburg Pass versus Hamburg Gap
- Apr 1, 2008Fitzhugh 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?
