      > Nope. He was probably, per his report, on the high ground just east of the
      S. Mtn. House, now their parking lot. The ground was dramatically altered by
      bulldozer to make way for the lot, and of course as you know the site is
      grossly overgrown now, obscuring Hill's view down the pike and across the
      Catoctin Valley.

      > Interesting thing though: Everyone always cites SM House as Hill's HQ, but
      I've never found a single scrap of evidence proving he ever set foot in the
      place. His hands were of course rather full at the time, a harrowing day for
      Lee's maverick. He had better things to do than sit around in the house.

      > More interesting still, Hill had no mandate from Lee to protect
      Longstreet's Hagerstown-bound column by throwing his (Hill's) troops into
      Turner's Gap for its defense. I don't think Hill or his subordinates ever
      received sufficient credit for their monumental deadlock. A state marker
      adjacent to Alfred Colquitt's Macon grave labels him as "The Rock of South
      Mountain," a well deserved but nevertheless postwar sobriquet.
