A new blog on the Maryland Campaign has opened. Civil War Ink promises to explore various aspects of the campaign--from personalities on the field to the actions on South Mountain.
Currently the author is profiling twelve former members of the 36th and 37th Congresses that participated in the Campaign. William Barksdale, who represented Mississippi in the 36th Congress, is the most recent posting.
Examining U.S. Congressmen at Antietam provides an interesting perspective on the complex events surrounding the Maryland Campaign.
