I received an email via my CWRT's website from a gentleman who's Great
Grandfather was David Penman Thompson of the 96th PA Volunteers. He stated that he
has plenty of info on him and has a sword that has been in the family. David
Penman Thompson was wounded at Birkettsville (South Mountain).
I know this group has several historians who focus on South Mtn, so contact
me if you wish the gentleman's email address for followup.
