Subject: [TalkAntietam] War Dept. Document
A number of years ago while I was loitering at the National Archives I came across a document entitled, Tactical Formations of Lesser Units... The document is really nothing more than a compilation of reports from unit commanders, both north and south. The requirement seemed to be that the report described deployment/formations of the unit being written about. Much of it is dry or bombastic but I did find some interesting descriptions of brigade deployments. A small part of the document is related to the 1862 Maryland Campaign.
I only mention this because I recently re-discovered the papers. If any of you have an interest I would happily post it in the files section. Otherwise, I'll let it lie.
