Hi Larry,

Nice spread on the articles, covering both the east & western theaters of the war, interesting the point that the ANV had new troops included in it’s ranks? I always thought the vast majority of Lee’s men were veterans, does anyone know how many new troops reinforced the ANV at Gettysburg, & what effect rookie soldiers may have had on the performance of the Rebs at “the Burg”??

Keep up the news, & thanks,
MD
