RE: [TalkAntietam] More than 100 dead in single fight
- Keep in mind too that the casualty figures would include any from the Andrew
Sharpshooters, who were attached to the 15th MA. But Fox says they are
included in his numbers as well.

Interesting. The 15th Mass. monument lists 75 killed outright and 43
dead of wounds for a total of 118. Wonder what the discrepancy is.
Thanks for the reply.

- 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
