Brian Downey. who maintains the ultimate Antietam website ("Antietam on the Web" and its companion blog "behind AotW"), has just posted (August 25) an important study on "individual soldiers who died on the Maryland Campaign of 1862."

He observes "as far as I know there is no single, comprehensive list anywhere."

Brian's initial list contains over 2,700 names--less than 1/3 of those who died.

Bookmark his site, since he promises to post new editions of "The Dead List" periodically.

Brian's current list can be found here.
