      Well, maybe he should have read it again before sending his
      men up
      Malvern Hill or across that open field on July 3, no? :-)

      Lee was an engineer by training and the rest of his personal
      library
      at West Point and the books he checked out from the school
      library
      reflect that.

        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.
