5560Re: [TalkAntietam] re Rodes brigade at Sunken Road
- Mar 3, 2009Dean,
Again, this is great information! So Longstreet's ordering of
Rodes to advance his brigade is an attempt to turn the right
flank of French's division?
Also, does "Unfurl those Colors" give any indication of when
Gordon was wounded for the final time? When you read Gordon's
memoir, he does not seem to indicate about how long after the
fighting began in the sunken road his wounds occurred.
Interestingly enough, though, he does state that Tew received his
mortal wounding fairly early on...which would seem to
indicate....if true... that G B Anderson also receives his mortal
wound in the ankle very early in the action...perhaps right after
returning from going to D H Hill to ask for reinforcements,
spurring the latter office to go to Lee and Longstreet and
thereby sparking the famous horse incident?
