Just How Far Was It. . .

My friend Jim Rosebrock has a great post on A.P. Hill's famed march from Harpers Ferry on September 17, 1862, on his blog South From The North Woods. An Antietam Guide and Park Volunteer, Jim calls into question one of the long-standing and remarkable episodes of the battle concerning those 17. . .er, 13.3. . .miles in 7 hours.

Thanks for mentioning this post. I have gotten a couple of comments at my blog about it. I wonder if anyone else actually measured the distances. The important thing (for the Confederates) is that he arrived at the right place and right time, 17 miles or not.
