Re: [TalkAntietam] RE: Weverton Pass
I think that I see the pass. If I understand the map correctly (it's not labeled) Weverton is only a mile or so south of Crampton's Gap. The West Point Atlas is not a great topographic map, so it is fairly hard to judge the advisability of trying to force that pass. Crampton's Gap does look like a much better place to get through to the valley.

Unfortunately the only description Stine gives is that it was a
miles below Harper's Ferry and that it was occupied by Wright's and
Pryor's Brigades of Anderson Div. Does that tell you where it might have
been located? Is it known by another name?
