      As everyone knows, the Confederates consisted of Robert E. Lee
      and a
      one-armed orderly, arrayed against 750,000 fresh, well trained,
      and battle
      hardened Union troops. Photos of supposed Confederate dead were
      manufactured by George McClellan later to hide the fact that Lee
      and his
      batman killed 150,000 Federal troops, and wounded another
      200,000. The two
      left the field in a buggy, Lee shooting a moon the whole way.
      McClellan saw
      it all through a glass (and darkly), but was too busy plotting to
      become
      President - and hating his mother despite an Oedipal complex - to
      bother
      pursuing.. See "Landscape Turned Red" page beginning to page end.

      Hope this helps!

      Harry

      (Welcome, by the way)

      hello new to the group, i am someone who likes history,
      especially the civil
      war and wanted to chat with anyone about antietam, my question is
      how many
      confederates were in the sunken road and what commander did they
      belong to?
      the confederates did well at antietam considering they were
      outnumbered. i
      haveseen pictures in books of the sunken road with confederate
      dead. hope to
      hear from someone. bob hellmers
