    Which is understandable since no unit historian was precise in their location. But, seems to me when they camped, didn t they camp as close to a brigade unit

      Which is understandable since no unit historian was precise in their
      location. But, seems to me when they camped, didn't they camp as close to a
      brigade unit as possibe? Also it seems to me that some one in the brigade
      would be close to where they were that day. Just a presumption on my part.
