  • Hi, Stephen. Thanks for the update, and the stereoviews of the wooden bridge sound like a great find! If my research is correct, the old pillars closest to the modern day Route 34 bridge supported two wooden bridges -- one burned by the Confederates in 1861 and one built by John Wood in 1871 that was destroyed in the 1889 flood. Do the pillars in your stereoview resemble those seen...

  • Hi, Folks. Can someone kindly identify which bridges were supported by the two sets of stone ruins on the Potomac between the Route 34 bridge and the Norfolk Southern Railroad bridge? From what I've read: The first covered bridge was burned by Confederates in 1861. The second covered bridge, built by John Wood in 1871, was destroyed in the 1889 flood. An iron bridge replaced John...

  • Hi, Tom. Murfin in GOB, p. 256, wrote that "William Roulette himself was keeping an eye on developments for his family had been prisoners in their own home since early morning, unable to leave for the firing." I'm unable to look up Murfin's source at the moment but I wanted to pass this info along. Also, I'm curious to know if this topic is mentioned the Antietam Farmsteads book. I...

  • Gerry, I visited Killiansburg Cave a couple years ago and it was in good condition, albeit much smaller than Schell's rendition. It's located off the C & O towpath a couple miles south of the parking area at the Snyder's Landing Road boat launch. I failed to log the exact milepost but it was somewhere between 75.3-75.7. After walking a mile or so from the parking area you'll first...

  • Brett, I agree with Tom in that much of this is overblown. One of the park rangers also presented an interesting theory that some men in Gregg's brigade wore dark gray uniforms that may have been mistaken for blue in the late afternoon light. I did, however, come across a couple of sources about the Confederate acquisition of Federal uniforms at Harpers Ferry, noted in Keith...

  • Hi, Scott. Per the AOTW site, the Madison Light Artillery (LA) and Rowan (NC) Artillery were equipped with 24-pdr. Howitzers.

I know the Federals had 20 lb. batteries across the Antietam. I'm well aware of...
