Here is a link to a thread on a forum I am a member of. A few of the members are having a forum outing at Sharpsburg/Antietam. @JustUs4All the lady who started the thread (Laura Elliott) is the one writing the book on the 16th Ga. Shes the one you and I gave information about our ancestors to.
Another impossible question. How many Ga. and Pennsylvania regiments at Gettysburg, including Southern legions and battalions, excluding artillery. I was surprised at the number of Ga. regiments. Probably shouldn't have been.
Army of Northern Virginia Longstreet’s Corps McLaw’s Division Semmes’ Brigade
10th 50th 51st 53rd Georgia Infantry
July 2. Arrived on the field about 3.30 P. M. Advanced about 5 o’clock in support of Kershaw’s and Anderson’s Brigades and took an active part in the conflict on Rose Hill and in the ravine and forest east of there in the vicinity of the Loop. Participated in the general advance late in the evening by which the Union forces were forced out of the Wheatfield and across Plum Run Valley. Brig. Gen. J. Semmes fell mortally wounded in the ravine near the Loop.
This man entered West Point at 16 and roomed with McClellan then Burnside.
At Antietam he arrived just in time to save the Reb Army from destruction. Who was it and what was he wearing, he took off his jacket before arrival.
