Francis C. Barlow promotion to division command - When ?
Posted on: 6/4/2018 8:15:49 PM
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.

Please cite your source.
