Re: [TalkAntietam] Re: Frederick Crouse
Glad you enjoyed it. The gentleman said that it was written "years
later". That's as specific as he got.
He did relate another, rather fascinating bit:
"I had two ancestors involved at Antietam. My great grandfather was
Frederick Crouse and his brother-in-law, my great uncle was John
Kerbaugh. Both were in the 128th PV Infantry. Crouse was severely
wounded and Kerbaugh was killed. Family legend has it that the same
ball struck them both. (I can't vouch for the truth of that statement.)"

- I am creating a matrix that displays, for each sector of the Maryland
Campaign, which state fought against which state. I have taken a crack
at Crampton's Gap and was wondering if any of you wouldn't mind taking
a look at it to see if I have it right. Thanks.
