      Does anyone know if Robert Francis Beckham USMA 1859 was at Antietam?  He replaced John Pelham as the commander of Stuart's Horse Artillery upon Pelham's death in the spring of 1863.  I know he was on G.W. Smith's staff with the rank of major in the summer of 1862 and have a vague reference that he served as the ordnance officer of an infantry division afterward.  Any information is appreciated.

        Looks like he was with Smith and therefore not in the Maryland Campaign.
