stuart wronged

I was enjoying the July 2019 edition, including the entry written about Confederate Lt. Col. Elijah V. White (“Daring Dozen,” p. 29), and was highly disappointed when it said that Maj. Gen. J.E.B. Stuart took an “ill-advised eight-day raid through Northern Virginia and Maryland, leaving Robert E. Lee’s army blind.” I am so tired of misguided historians repeating that myth. Lee was not blind. Please read Retreat From Gettysburg by Kent Masterson Brown. Lee came to Pennsylvania to obtain food and supplies. He knew the roads and terrain. He had maps as well as mapmaker Jedediah Hotchkiss with him. His troops were all over the place west of the Susquehanna River foraging for food, cattle, and supplies. Virginia was decimated from all the fighting. Lee did not want to start…

A UNION VETERAN of several major battles, including Antietam and Gettysburg, artillerist George Bucknam was wounded during the Wilderness fighting of May 5-7, 1864. “Through the carelessness of one of our own men,” he explained later, “my gun prematured, as I was driving out my sponge staff after ramming a 12-lb. shot in the gun, and blowed my right hand off above the wrist, and three fingers of my left hand.” In a narrative submitted to a left-handed penmanship contest in 1867, Bucknam detailed the effects of the explosion: “[It] burst the drum of my left ear, and burnt my face, and knocked me down, and jarred me considerable, but left me sensible, so I got up and walked off the field.” Writing with his left hand, Bucknam methodically described the…

photo finish

IN THE REMARKABLE series of images captured by Alexander Gardner and James F. Gibson across the Antietam battlefield on September 19-22, 1862, one that stands out is the photograph of four 10-pounder Parrott rifled guns of Captain James Knap’s Battery E, Pennsylvania Light Artillery. There are two notable things about this image, which was captured on September 19. First, it shows soldiers as they looked in battle, taken nearly on the very ground that the unit had fought upon two days before. Knap’s artillerymen wear a mixture of fatigue coats and shell jackets as well as a variety of hats. These are fighting men, not garrison troops. Second, under high resolution, we can see much of the ground on which some of the fiercest fighting of the battle occurred. The battery…
