      We had some discussion of the 12M. time a few years back on here. Someone claimed to have seen the original letter Mac wrote to be sent via telegraph and that he wrote it at 12 noon not midnight....

      I received my copy on Friday, and right now am a little overwhelmed. I’m not sure if any campaign of the Civil War has received this kind of treatment. Really something. First thing I checked was SO 191, and really nice to see everything make sense for once, though I think he soft-pedals the time-line a bit regarding when it was found and when it got to army HQ – definitely times the Trophies telegram at 12 midnight of the 13th/14th.

      655 pages of text, 794 total. But VERY READABLE!!! Bibliography is on-line at www.mdhs.org/publications/resources.
