Re: [TalkAntietam] Re: re Murfin and description of Sunken Road fight
- G.B. Anderson's brigade was astride the Boonsboro Pike in the low ground between the ridge facing the bridge and Cemetery hill. He had skirmishers out on the crest of the ridge watching Middle Bridge. They moved to their left a bit to use the ravine for shelter from artillery, but didn't join Rodes' brigade in the lane until shortly before French's atack.

What do the maps in the Armstrong's book about the Second Corps
show for earlier in the Sunken Road action? Especially positions
of the regiments in G B Anderson's brigade?
