719Harpers Ferry OOB information wanted
- May 31, 2002I need some assistance from this august body, please.
Does anyone have a good order of battle for the Yankees at Harpers
Ferry? I've seen OOBs that list 4 colonels, but not the exact
breakdown of which units were in which brigade. I know from some
period reading of original sources that D'Utassy had 3 regiments,
Ward had 4 for example, but which ones were assigned to whom?
Also, what was the regimental breakdown of the 12,000+ men captured?
How many men were assigned to each regiment? I've seen sources that
state that the Garibadli Guards (39th NY) had roughly 450 men, but I
have yet to see similar numbers for all the rest of the regiments.
Anyone have this information?
