Army of the Potomac Armament project is complete, mostly!

     I have just posted my research to discover what type of firearm each regiment of the Army of the Potomac carried during the Maryland Campaign. You can download the full spreadsheet and read the findings and methodology under the "Army of the Potomac Armament" tab.
     This is an ongoing project and requires your assistance to complete. If you have sources that differ from what the spreadsheet says, please get in touch with me and let me know.

Antietam at Arlington

     Over Memorial Day weekend, I had the pleasure of spending a day at Arlington National Cemetery with the goal in mind of seeing as many graves related to the Battle of Antietam and the Maryland Campaign as I could. Along the way, I stumbled upon many other graves of historical (especially Civil War) interest, as one is apt to do in Arlington. Below is just a sample of graves of soldiers who participated in the Maryland Campaign. It is not a comprehensive list--there was not enough time to see them all. Some of them I planned on seeing while I happily stumbled upon others.
     Enjoy your Memorial Day and do not forget what this day really means.
