      Subject: [TalkAntietam] Order 191


      As I've mentioned before our study group is doing the Antietam campaign this
      year. Next week we will be discussing the beginning of the campaign and
      will definetly hit on order 191. Having read many different sources I'm still
      confused as to when Lee knew about McClellan's finding of the order. I think
      it was Murfin who said that at 10 pm on the 13th Lee sent a message to
      McLaws(?) that said the Union was coming to Harper's Ferry, but that the Union
      moves that afternoon had not been in that direction so he assumed that Lee had
      heard about the finding and assumed Mac would go to HF. Someone else said that

      Lee did not know about it until that winter when he read a newspaper account
      of it. And someone else said that he knew of it but that the newspaper just
      revealed who's copy had been lost. So what is the most accepted version?
