5920re R H Anderson Division early morning to mornig of Sept 17
- Oct 27, 2009Gang;
According to Carman MS, Anderson's division is ordered by
Longstreet, early on the morning of the 17, via M'Laws, "down the
road (Shepherdstown Road) to the hill beyond the town, where it
would receive orders."
I have looked at the Trailhead Graphics map for Antietam and
there looks as if there could be a hill on the Michael Farm, just
north of the village, between the Landing Road and the
northernmost street of the village, Potomac or Chapline Street.
Does anyone know for sure where Anderson parked his division
before he received orders to move towards the Sunken Road?
