|Francis C. Barlow promotion to division command - When ?|

|Does anyone have a specific date as to when XI Corps commander O.O. Howard placed Barlow in command of the 1st Division?|
It was in May 1863 after Chancellorsville, and sometime before May 29, 1863 when Barlow mentions it in a letter to his mother dated that day.
I've checked both books on Barlow: "Fear Was Not in Him"; and "The Boy General". No date given.
