5758Re: [TalkAntietam] re Murfin and description of Sunken Road fight
- Jun 22, 2009Part of R.H. Anderson's division halted back there on its way
forward. This is mentioned in Collins' Rodes biography (and probably
others I don't have handy at the moment). He mentions on pg 168 that
one regiment and part of another of Pryor's Bde stopped in the Piper
Orchard and Rodes had to demand that Pryor send them into the fight.
I don't know that I'd call it a "second line", though.
