      Dear Larry,

      Same thoughts here. While it appears he did get some information slightly wrong in "Taken at the Flood" (or his editors did), that work plus the other two made a gigantic contribution to a proper understanding not only of the Maryland Campaign but also Confederate strategy basically from the beginning of the war until the Army of Northern Virginia retreated back to Virginia.

      Tom Clemens, please extend the condolence of the entire Talk Antietam board to Dr. Harsh's family. Condolences also to you for the loss of a great mentor, friend and fellow colleague.

      Yr. Obt. Svt.
