Although every effort has been made to ensure the facts on this website are correct, and that this is a viable source of research, I am not really an expert in the Civil War, and to be absolutely sure you are getting exactly what you need, please visit a site of an expert... That's just my disclaimer, I really do stand behind this information, though. If you find an error, please send it to zorastrus (at) walla (dot) com. Please correct the e-mail, it was written that way to avoid spam-robots. Some other sources for this particular battle, as well as the Civil War, can be found in the links section of this site. Please enjoy, and I hope this site looks better than most of the Civil War Sites out there.
