      Was Moxley Sorrel wounded in the shoulder while talking to Col
      Cooke of the 27th NC before or after the incident of "Battery
      Longstreet" in the Piper farm area?? Who took over from Sorrel
      his duties of the principal adjutant for Longstreet after the
      wounding and until his return to duty?

      Sorrel does not say in his Memoir who did take over for him,
