effective use of artillery?
- This past weekend, I was at the battlefield. It happened to be one of the "Artillery Weekends" which the park periodically sponsors. Hence the following question:
Aside from counter-battery fire (the northern army always seems to excel at this), which army utilized its artillery in the most effective manner during the battle?
I always assumed that Southern artillery although being inferior in calliber and numbers was the most effective of the two at Antietam. But I heard a myriad of opinions contrary to this on Sunday.
Any thoughts out there?
