Re: AP Hill's route vs the route taken by the other divisions to Antietam

was Gorman's flank regiment, or that the right of his line was actually
on the other side of the bypass. I haven't spent much time in the West
Woods in the past, and I'm looking forward to going back after I finish
the new Armstrong book.
