5259Re: [TalkAntietam] Brevet Brigadier General Hoffman
- Jan 2, 2009His modern flat marker in Laurel Hill cemetery says Hoffman, but the entry in Findagrave, where I saw the photo, says Hofmann. Hunt's book spells it Hofmann, and also says his grave is unmarked, so I'm guessing it's a new headstone.

It is spelled Hofmann on all four Antietam war department tablets that
bear his name. There used to be a marker at the corner of Rt. 65 and
Mansfield Avenue that had his name as Hoffmann, but this is from a
transcription and could be incorrect.
