It could be possible Carman was using stringers to help him with
his research. I know the material you referenced in your comments

<snip> > Another mystery to resolve now: in the Chicago PL is a
series of letters to a third party, cannot recall the name
off-hand, from a number of Confederates from AL that were
solicited by a newspaper advertisement in Birmingham to send
their recollections of Antietam. (I think I shared a couple of
these with Gerry) They represent several regiments, including a
couple from Wilcox's brigade, that help with that part of the
fight. What is intriguing is that all addressed to this third
party except one, which is addressed to Carman. So what is the
connection here? I cannot find one. So far anyway. Was Carman
using"stringers?" I don't know.
