I can only repeat myself.
The pictures are so expressive and depict the events of the battle down to the last detail.
This is just a terrific work of art!

Thank you to everyone for their kind comments.

My garage is freezing at the moment but I am moving towards 9.00 AM which sees the deployment of Summers huge Corps and Burnsides orders to cross the Rhorbach bridge .

Lots to do.

Happy Christmas.

Best wishes,

Chris

The Battle of Antietam ( Sharpsburg) 17th September 1862

Timeline 8.45 AM.

After an intense musketry duel, the veterans of Hoods Division have routed the First Brigade of Second Union Division Lt. Colonel Hector Tyndall sending the survivors and the hapless Major General Mansfield crashing into the advancing Second Brigade, causing it to become disorganised.

Meanwhile, the Union First Division, Twelfth Corps, Brigadier General Alpheus S Williams is continuing up the Smoketown Road, it’s advance being contested by the reorganised Confederate artillery by the Dunkard church.

The Twelfth Corps artillery is deploying through the East Wood in order to render support.

Bild

Contemporaneously, Major General Edwin. V. ‘Bull’ Summer has arrived at the head of his mighty Second Corps and is eager for action.

Bild

Unfortunately however, General Joseph Hooker commanding the First Corps has just been wounded by a Confederate shell and has passed his command to Brigadier George G. Meade before being removed from the field.

Bild

With Mansfield temporarily absent, there is now no co-ordination of command between Second, First and Twelfth Corps.

Major General Thomas J.Jackson now has only six reduced brigades from his initial command of ten although the Divisions of McLaws and Walker are now in position out of sight in the West Wood.

Major General Sumner is determined to deliver the knockout blow to the Army of North Virginia.

Advance!

Awesome display here: I especially like the shot with the building on fire in the background.
Really great "atmospheric" shots in the lot, as usual with you.
Keep it up Chris: it's eye candy.

Hey Chris,
wonderfol deep atmosphere in your pictures...the realism cannot be beat.
I keep noticing that in your pictures there are many wounded, fallen and retreating,
which gives the whole thing even more naturalness.
