Tom,

We have "The Maryland Campaign of September 1862 - Ezra A. Carman's Definitive Study of the Union and Confederate Armies at Antietam" edited by Joseph Pierro. This was published in 2008.

Is this part of those volumes? Or something totally different?

I also bought Pierro's book. However, Tom Clemens published his own edition of the Carman manuscript and (in my opinion) has done a far better job.

Tom's edition is in three volumes. What distinguishes Tom's version are the voluminous detailed footnotes that accompany each volume.

They provide corrections, explanations, and other addendum that greatly enrich the original manuscript.

Also, Clemens' edition includes maps and photos.
As you undoubtedly know, Pierro's book has neither.

I have Clemens' edition....it has been a couple of years now.... but I distinctly remember reading the Clemens' edition, along side an open copy of Gottfried's "The Maps of Antietam". So Clemens' maps must not have been that great-:)

Right now, Tom Clemens is giving lectures at a conference over here in the UK ; I am delighted to say that I am in attendance at the conference, and have literally just had lunch with Tom.

His talk has really opened my eyes to the whys and wherefores of the Maryland Campaign, especially in regard to the Lost Order historiography.

Tomorrow he'll be speaking about the Battle of Antietam itself .

Can't wait !

Regards, Phil

On my last visit to Antietam, Tom Clemens took us on a superb hike on the Final Attack trail.
Along the way, he showed us this spring, which I'd never seen before. He has accounts of it being used during the battle.
