    Perfect, Thad. My GG-Grandfather Young, then a captain (4th Pa Cav), led an advance company across the bridge but was pinned down for hours on the other side. This image shows the shallow water as it was in 1862, begging the eternal question: Why didn't the Union troops wade the creek, instead of being channeled across the bridge (where they were cut down)? Young and my GG-Grandfather Knight (Capt., 3rd Va Cav) faced each other the day before at South Mountain. I wonder if they ever knew? (Young's daughter and Knight's son married each other.)

    Richard, Thanks for you comment -- that is a true piece of American history which has so many echoes it boggles the mind. The best part is that the Youngs and Knights were united in the end. Thanks again, my friend!
