      Larry;

      Check out Tom Carhart's book "Lost Triumph -- Lee's Real Plan at
      Gettysburg and Why It Failed". You might find the answer to your
      question there.

      Am in process of reading the book now... contains a lot of neat
      information and new information IMHO.

      Has anyone ever seen anything that said Lee read/studied Jomini
      or
      was a member of the Napoleon Club?

        Gerry,

        From the map I have, it looks like Beaver Creek starts on South
        Mountain near RT 64 about 10 miles NE of Boonsboro and then heads
        SW
        roughly following RT 66. Then NW of Boonsboro just south of the
        Old
        National Pike it joins with Little Beaver Creek and heads SW to
        join
        Antietam Creek at RT 68. Beaver Creek is not west of Boonsboro
        but
        rather to the north.

        Larry F.
