      Teej;

      Ok. Everything I have read seems to indicate that both Stuart and
      Jackson had their headquarters "in the saddle" while at
      Sharpsburg. I was wondering, though, whether Jackson in
      particular had a reasonably "fixed" location where he could be
      found if needed.
