Antietam, the Lost Order
- I see there is a new book by Donald Jermann coming out about the Lost
Order. has anyone read it? Thanks.
- Hey buddy! It might have been in Fox's Regimental Losses in the Civil
War. Also, to the best of my knowledge, Antietam had the highest
number of surgeons killed in a single battle: four. At Gettysburg I
think one was killed and thirteen wounded. I don't know how many
surgeons were wounded at Antietam, but know one or two surgeons from
the 14th Connecticut had a narrow escape at the Roulette Farm. Scott
