6606RE: [TalkAntietam] Re: Wounding of "Greasy Dick" Richardson was A R Lawton Wounding
- Jul 7, 2011Steve,
One of the mysteries surrounding Dick Richardson's death was the nature of
his wounding while trying to get or direct artillery fire on the
Confederates in the Sunken Road.... Do you know precisely what the wound was
that eventually killed him?

Thank you, Teej.
This is great information and fills in many blanks. I couldn't help but to
draw a parallel to Lawton's poor diet of oysters, beefsteak and eggnog
allegedly contributing to his slow recovery, as Elizabeth Pry claimed that
Israel Richardson's sweet tooth, while recovering in her home, supposedly
led to his demise. But that's an entirely different topic...
