      Dear Tom,

      Thanks for that bit of terrain information! I think Joe Harsh has
      G B Anderson totally misplaced in his maps in TATF. Think he also
      got "Tige" Anderson and George Anderson confused.

      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.

      Larry;

      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?
