Would anyone have a photo of Mansfield's aide, Capt. Clarence
Hopkins Dyer? None found in the usual places but I will check at the
WP Library and Middlesex CHS. How about the name of his body servant
or more info on the chief Twelfth Corps surgeon who attended him, Dr.
Does John Schildt's book, "Antietam Hospitals", have info on the
Twelfth Corp medical staff esp. the Martin Line Farm where Mansfield
died? I have most of John's books but unfortunately not this one. Did
he also write a book about the Twelfth Corps at Antietam?
From Dyer's letter: "Doct. (Anselum) Surgeon of the [Twelfth} Corps,
and Docts Porter and Weeks (the latter of the Navy) were all very
attentive to him." Any info about the other two?
