Larry,

Worthy of note in the casualty list of the 46th N.C. is the unfortunate fate of the Phillips family in Co. A, and also the fact that in Co.D three of the six wounded were hit by artillery fire. Antietam was a good battlefield to deploy artillery, with the lie of the land providing natural gun platforms and panoramic fields of fire.


Regards, Phil
