Confederate Cavalry at Sharpsburg
- Hi Folks,
I wish I knew more about Cavalry operations on the Maryland Campaign ...
I'm doing some more map work, translating parts of Carman/Cope for the
web (http://aotw.org/maps.php?map_number=main). Just now, I'm looking
at the vicinity of the West Woods as Sedgwick's Division hit about
9:30 am on the 17th. I have Confederate cavalry positions generally
indicated on and near Hauser's Ridge, but not identified by unit.
I'd like to assume these are all of Fitz Lee's Brigade, as Hampton
reports he arrived at Sharpsburg sometime during the day on the 17th,
and I'm pretty sure Robinsons's (Munford) Brigade was at the far,
southern end of the field near Antietam Creek.
Does anybody out there have more specific documenation on this? Gen
Stuart's report is very vague, and I don't have one from Fitz Lee.
I'm trying to get to the Regiment level for the horsemen, and by
battery for the artillery accompanying, if possible. I'd like to at
least confirm the Brigade!
Thanks in advance,
- It's Robertson's Brigade, under Munford, of course, not Robinson.
