I may be wrong, as often I am, but I believe that James Garfield was Rosey's
Chief of Staff. I know they bunked in the same tent. The best technical
description writing of this battle, I have found in Peter Cozzens' "No
Better Place To Die". Cozzen talks again about Garfield's relation with
Rosecrans in his book, "This Terrible Sound".

him when it happened.----Dan
