    Dear Tom It could be possible Carman was using stringers to help him with his research. I know the material you referenced in your comments to Jake. Yr. Obt.

      <snip> > Another mystery to resolve now: in the Chicago PL is a
      series of letters to a third party, cannot recall the name
      off-hand, from a number of Confederates from AL that were
      solicited by a newspaper advertisement in Birmingham to send
      their recollections of Antietam. (I think I shared a couple of
      these with Gerry) They represent several regiments, including a
      couple from Wilcox's brigade, that help with that part of the
      fight. What is intriguing is that all addressed to this third
      party except one, which is addressed to Carman. So what is the
      connection here? I cannot find one. So far anyway. Was Carman
      using"stringers?" I don't know.

      Oh, if you change the FORMAT, it could be done (in theory). I was merely speaking about the impossibility of ever seeing the Antietam Atlas ever reprinted in

        Oh, if you change the FORMAT, it could be done (in theory). I was merely speaking about the impossibility of ever seeing the Antietam Atlas ever reprinted in its original form. (CD-ROM is great, but unless you have a color printer that'll take a sheet of paper three feet by four feet. . . . )

        For those who've never seen the Antietam Atlas (and very few were produced), each plate is about the size of a small coffee table. If you've ever seen a plate from the ORIGINAL OR Atlas (not the one currently sold in bookstores; those have been reduced dramatically in size), it's almost identical. And in terms of page count, the OR Atlas is probably 20x the size of the Antietam Atlas. (A book has to be of a certain length to make the eocnomics of publishing work.)
