at 140th Sharpsburg
12-15 September 2002
Thirteen hundred soldiers of Thomas Drayton's mixed brigade of Georgians and South Carolinians marched into the fight at Boonsborough or Fox's Gap on 14 September 1862. Casualties were severe. Less than half marched away.
Three days later, the shattered brigade participated in the bloody battle of near Antietam Creek.
Soon thereafter, the brigade was disbanded. Its units transferred to other brigades, and its commander banished to the Trans-Mississippi Theater.
Join the dedicated reenactors who are recreating this overlooked and forgotten brigade of the Army of Northern Virginia for the 140th anniversary of the Battle of Sharpsburg.
Participation in the brigade is limited.
