  • That is actually from a pamphlet written by O.T. Reilly to accompany their visit to Antietam. He is not given credit in the history of the 124th PA. The final paragraph of the original unedited pamphlet reads "O. T. Reilly is your Guide. If you wish any Guide Books, Photographs of the Field or Genuine Relics you can get them at his relic room in Sharpsburg, or of his agents on the...

Samuel Wright of a...
