6430RE: [TalkAntietam] Information on Firearms Used by Regiments at Antietam
- Oct 28, 2010Not really. Record keeping was just getting organized at the federal level. Years ago I searched the Ordnance returns for some artillery, and nothing existed before last quarter of 1862. And this was a US Regular battery! Fred Todd's U.S. Military Equipage has some info, and you can go through and pull out some general information.

Subject: [TalkAntietam] Information on Firearms Used by Regiments at Antietam
Does anyone know if there is a standard reference or references where I could go to see how the different regiments at Antietam were armed (ie Model 1861 Springfield, Enfield, smoothbore, etc.
