- Oct 4, 2008Ok, then, can it be said by most that Priest is, in some cases,
unreliable as a guide to the tactical movements of the battle itself?
How then does a newbie to studying this battle go about tracing
movements of brigades (and in some cases regiments) so that I can get
them into my head? I mean, is there a reliable work, like Pfanz for
Gettysburg, that spends a lot of time on actual battle movements?
Harsh, Murfin, Sears et.al. don't seem (to me) to offer the kind of
detail that Priest does. The campaign I have a grasp on, it's the
battle itself that is foggy.
That's also why I've been asking about the value of Carman.
Or, maybe I just need a battlefield guide for 3 hours in a few weeks?
