      Tom;

      Good to know, but IIRC D H Hill in his OR report mentions
      something about either Ratchford or Anderson being wounded while
      the division was crossing the Potomac in early September at the
      beginning of the campaign?

      Obviously since Anderson ranked Ratchford, he was the Chief of
      Staff but it became the Ratchford after Anderson was wounded,
      most likely at South Mountain.

      Dear Jill;

      Thanks. But Tom Clemens posits, according to Krick's book,
      someone else was the AAG/Chief of Staff for Hill during the MD
      Campaign. So, who is right?
