An 1866 document produced by laborers locating bodies on the battlefield stated that the heaviest concentrations of dead lay on the eastern and western sections of the field and that the dead were fairly light in the center where the Hornets Nest was located..This may be true Dan, but remember, as soon as the battle ended, Union troops started gathering up their dead as well as Confederate dead. Those that might have been found after the war was over, were most likely those that were killed in the brush and bramble of the battlefield, whereas, the Hornet's Nest was quite open and bodies were easily found there following the battle.Just a thought of common sense with only documentation of them finding and burying the dead following the battle. IIRC, Grant denied Beauregard access to Confederate dead, since they already had been gathered up and buried.JEJ
