Thank you very much for this offer and I may take you up on it! And
thank you again for the e-mails about your book. This will give me a
great head start on my paper.
I have read that D.H. Hill did not write much about Antietam except
what he did for B&L so I guess there is no use to get anything else
by/about him? Obviously unpublished letters, etc., you mentioned
might have some good stuff about his experiences with Stuart and R.E.

in Richmond (MoC, Lib Va, VHS) you need pulled, let me know and I'll
be happy to get it for you.
