      Have any of you actually taken the time to view and study the
      painting by James Hope of the assault on Burnside's Bridge? Hope
      was a participant at the Antietam battle and his painting were
      praised by veterans for their realism and their relative
      accuracy. One officer only had a single complaint about the
      paintings: Not enough bodies in some of them!
