        Gang;

        This weekend I am coordinating a Antietam/Sharpsburg Battlefield Stomp from the Facebook group of the same name. I am going to be doing a presentation in the afternoon on Saturday about R H Anderson's division reinforcing the Alabamians and Carolinians in the Sunken Road and the disaster that ultimately caused.

        In my historical fiction novel None But Heroes, I have interaction by courier messages between BG Roger Pryor and MG James Longstreet. Here is the full exchange of the messages:

        First note from Pryor to Longstreet:
        “General Longstreet: As General Anderson is disabled by wounding, I am now in command. The men will hold their positions until the last one is taken.”

        First note from Longstreet to Pryor in reply:
        “We did not come here to be taken or surrender, we came here to fight.”

        Second message from Pryor to Longstreet:
        “General, for God’s sake, send up some guns or we will be unable to hold against the fresh numbers of the enemy.
        R.A. Pryor, Cmdg. Division
        General Longstreet.”

        Second message from Longstreet in reply to Pryor:
        “The guns will be sent, dear General; this is a hard fight and we had all rather die than lose it.
        Yr. Obt Servant,
        J. Longstreet
        General R. A. Pryor.”

        My needing a favor is this: I did not make up the dialogue (and I doubt I could have made up such an exchange) but have been unable to locate the sources wherein both messages exchanges were mentioned. I thought perhaps Longstreet might have had the text of the messages exchanges in footnoting in his Memoir or possibly in his article "The Invasion of Maryland" in B&L Vol. 2, but I have had no success.

        Can anyone help me pin down the source or sources where the message exchanged is mentioned and the messages contents given? And also the same for the verbal comments?

        Thanks so much! (I need the information before Friday at noon.)

        Very respectfully,
        Your Obdt. Servant,

                  Gerry,


                  I was unaware of your Facebook group and have now joined it.

                  I will try to re-arrange plans so I can join you for Tom Clemens' trek on Sunday.

                  Okay. Great. I have that book BTW... and Krick's article is an excellent one.


                  Thanks Tom Shay!

                  Gang;


                  This weekend I am coordinating a Antietam/Sharpsburg Battlefield Stomp from the Facebook group of the same name. I am going to be doing a presentation in the afternoon on Saturday about R H Anderson's division reinforcing the Alabamians and Carolinians in the Sunken Road and the disaster that ultimately caused.


                  In my historical fiction novel None But Heroes, I have interaction by courier messages between BG Roger Pryor and MG James Longstreet. Here is the full exchange of the messages:


                  First note from Pryor to Longstreet:
                  “General Longstreet: As General Anderson is disabled by wounding, I am now in command. The men will hold their positions until the last one is taken.�


                  First note from Longstreet to Pryor in reply:
                  “We did not come here to be taken or surrender, we came here to fight.�


                  Second message from Pryor to Longstreet:
                  “General, for God’s sake, send up some guns or we will be unable to hold against the fresh numbers of the enemy.
                  R.A. Pryor, Cmdg. Division
                  General Longstreet.�


                  Second message from Longstreet in reply to Pryor:
                  “The guns will be sent, dear General; this is a hard fight and we had all rather die than lose it.
                  Yr. Obt Servant,
                  J. Longstreet
                  General R. A. Pryor.�


                  My needing a favor is this: I did not make up the dialogue (and I doubt I could have made up such an exchange) but have been unable to locate the sources wherein both messages exchanges were mentioned. I thought perhaps Longstreet might have had the text of the messages exchanges in footnoting in his Memoir or possibly in his article "The Invasion of Maryland" in B&L Vol. 2, but I have had no success.


                  Can anyone help me pin down the source or sources where the message exchanged is mentioned and the messages contents given? And also the same for the verbal comments?


                  Thanks so much! (I need the information before Friday at noon.)


                  Very respectfully,
                  Your Obdt. Servant,
