      Gerry,
      Stephen likely is referring to Beaver Creek that runs north of Boonsboro and empties into Antietam Creek. Rebels considered it as a potential defensive position once Mac began moving upon Turner's Gap. Ol' Pete would have crossed it en route from Boonsboro to Hagerstown, then re-crossed it in hurrying to the defense of South Mtn.

      Stephen,

      Do you mean Beaver Dam Creek? Seven Days Battles? A time frame
      would be helpful?
