  • Gerry, congratulations. I know there was a lot of blood, sweat and tears that went into this, and I'm looking forward to reading it.

  • Excellent History Channel material. I was disappointed that they did not cover the annual movement of the monuments to storage for the winter. I was also surprised and saddened that they did not note the fact that Buster is NOT listed on the 20th Maine monument. I suppose a future show will cover all the unmarked graves located in the East woods at ANB, marked by the small, white...

  • Tom is correct. There were no 30 Lb Parrots on either side. 20 Lb were the largest rifles used. The 30 is a monster, 4500 lb tube. We just cast a replica at our foundry.

  • Tom, we always stay at the Red Roof in Williamsport. Decent and cheap, you can cut across the back roads to Sharpsburg. You can be in Hagerstown at the mall in just a few minutes from there as well. Check the net for coupons. Dave McGowan

  • Good catch Tom, I'll bet there are a lot of dissertations and War College papers on ACW battles out there. Interesting to see it from a professional soldier's eye.

  • Hi Everyone: Well, for the first time we're going to Sharpsburg for the anniversary. There is a lot going on, though, and I'm trying to gather all the strings together so I don't miss anything. I was hoping others would contribute to this short list of events: Wed: Ranger tours of South Mountain Sat: Shepherdstown field and wading the Potomac with SBPA Fri-Sun Various other stuff...

  • Tom and Stu, these are different segments than the ones I referred to. They are newer and much more in depth, however the Otto farm is not covered. I emailed ACTV to see if there were more episodes, and how to obtain the existing ones. These new episodes are really excellent, and good quality, well worth downloading.

  • Gerry, my wife is obsessed with the Clipp house. We walked the area thoroughly in May, took a bunch of measurements and the like. She is convinced that the house in the only existing picture was the "second house", and that the wartime house with the "tall chimney" was pulled down post-battle. We have a map showing outbuildings and a fence. There was an orchard there. We've seen in...

  • There were 10 episodes, and I think the host said the Otto house was the last one, they were downloaded directly from their website. Worst comes to worst, let me know and I'll burn and mail them all to you. My wife really likes the houses and the civilian stories, she's working on a genealogy of the Clipps now, of the Clipp house fame, it's an ongoing project to prove how large the...
