      WOW!! You do not pull lightly do you?

      To answer your three questions, I would suggest:

      1. Taken at the Flood by Joe Harsh, who just recently passed away, that covers the entire campaign including the battle;
      2. The Ezra Carman battle manuscript (specifically on the battle) can be downloaded from the Internet; I have attached the pdf file here for your review. (It is at least seventy pages of small type etc...so be prepared to be reading for a while!!!!!)
      3. While Longstreet's own memoirs can be confusing, FMTA is a good source as is the memoir of G Moxley Sorrel. The excellent book about the Washington Artillery by William Minor Owen has some good anecdotal information as does the articles in Battles and Leaders of the Civil War.
      4. Also attached is a personal bibliographic reading list I prepared to go with a presentation I put together about the Maryland Campaign to give to CWRT groups.

      I hope all this helps! And may I ask the reason(s) for the questions about Longstreet during the Maryland Campaign???
