About Me

My Photo
I am a lifelong student of military history with particular interest in the Battle of Antietam. I work for the federal government in Washington DC and have two teenagers who I love very much. I currently volunteer at the battlefield and devote much time to the study of this battle and the Maryland Campaign. I enjoy collecting notable contemporary quotations by and about the men of Antietam. These words often add a degree of color and character not found elsewhere in their stories. A feature of this blog is the presentation of some of these quotes. My perspective comes from a 28 year career in the U.S. Army. Travels took me to World War II battlefields in Europe and the Pacific where American valor ended the tyranny of Nazism and Empire. But our country faced its own greatest challenge 80 years earlier during the Civil War. And it was the critical late summer of 1862, when Robert E. Lee launched the Maryland Campaign that fortune could have gone either way. It is an incredible story of drama, carnage, bravery, and missed opportunities that culminated around the fields and woodlots of peaceful Sharpsburg MD. So join me as I make this journey South from the North Woods.

West Pointers in the Maryland Campaign

West Pointers in the Maryland Campaign

Charles Warner USMA 1862

As the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam, the bloodiest day in American history approaches, I have turned my attention to a small group of men who fought there.  These are the graduates of the United States Military Academy at West Point.  From Joseph K.F. Mansfield in the Class of 1822 to Charles Warner, the “Goat” of the Class of 1862, all told 197 graduates served in some capacity in the Maryland Campaign and most fought at Antietam.  In assembling this list, I extensively used George W. Cullum's Biographical Register of the Officers and Graduates of the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York.  Cullem assigned a number to each graduate.  The register contains a short biographical summary of each officer’s service in the United States Army.  Cullem provides no information on Confederate service merely stating that individual “Joined in the Rebellion of 1861‑66 against the United States.”

While some officers connection may be tenuous at best, if Cullem stated that a man participated in the Maryland Campaign, or fought at Antietam, he made my list.  I decided to also include John Reynolds though he was detached from the Army of the Potomac to command the Pennsylvania Emergency Militia.  Also listed are John Pelham and Thomas Rosser. These southern cadets left the academy immediately after Fort Sumter, just shy of their formal graduation date.  Mere attendance for some period of time does not qualify an individual for this list.  Examples in this category are Lowell Armistead, kicked out of the Academy for breaking a plate over the head of fellow cadet Jubal Early and Dunbar Ransom who left West Point to attend Norwich when his father assumed the position of superintendant there.
There were 199 men (including Pelham and Rosser) who wore the cadet gray that now fought, and in some cases, died in this most decisive of battles. 
Just thirty-three (counting Pelham and Rosser) would serve with the Confederate Army.  The vast majority, 166, remained loyal to the nation that trained them and turned them into soldiers.
Most of the generals are well known.  From Joseph Mansfield of the Class of 1862 to Fitzhugh Lee of the Class of 1856, sixty-four men wore a general’s star.  Fifty-six were field grade officers (colonels, lieutenant colonels and majors) commanding brigades, regiments or senior staff positions.  The rest, 77 in all, were company-grade officers (captains or lieutenants.) In that group are fifteen graduates of the West Point Class of 1862.  These men graduated on June 17, 1862 and most were immediately sent to join McClellan’s Army on the Peninsula.  Mere boys in many cases, by the Maryland Campaign they were already hardened veterans having fought in some cases both on the Peninsula and at Second Bull Run prior to the Maryland Campaign.  Amazingly, of the graduates of that last class, a number of these men would still be on duty leading brigades and divisions in the Spanish American War. 
Seven would give their life during the Maryland Campaign.  They include Jesse Reno and Owen K. McLemore at South Mountain; Dixon Miles at Harpers Ferry; and Joseph Mansfield, Israel B. Richardson, George B. Anderson, and Henry Kingsbury on the bloody field of Sharpsburg.  Many others would not live to see the dawn of peace.  Nine months later Gettysburg claimed seven more.  John Reynolds (1841) Gettysburg Jul 1 1863, Richard Garnett (1841) Gettysburg Jul 3 1863, William D. Pender (1854)  Gettysburg Jul 3 1863, Stephen H. Weed (1854) Gettysburg Jul 2 1863, Charles E. Hazlett (M-1861) Gettysburg Jul 2 1863, Alonzo Cushing (J-1861) Gettysburg Jul 3 1863, George A. Woodruff (J-1861) Gettysburg Jul 4 1863,
Eighteen others were killed on other battlefields or from the ravages of the war.  They range from the might Stonewall who fell at Chancellorsville to young Albert Murray, Class of 1862, who died a prisoner of war in Macon Georgia. 
The casual reader will likely not recognize many of these men.  Names like Francis N. Clarke, Frederic Myers, Charles Sawtelle, and Charles N. Warner don’t immediately come to mind.  But whether leading an army, or an ordnance train, each and every one contributed to the success of his army on that bloody day.  And as the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of that bloody day is about to begin, look at the names, contemplate the service, and mourn the lives lost.

  1. Jim,

    Augustus Coleman, Lt. Colonel of the 11th OVI attended West Point but did not graduate. I think he was in the class of 1854. He was killed in the attack on Burnsides Bridge.

  2. Thanks Phil,
    I will look him up and add him to my list of West Point cadets who did not graduate but who fought here. My thanks for sending me this information.

  3. In your class of 1846, you have Jesse Reno. If I recall correctly, he was killed at South Mountain. Great blog, I always enjoy each of my visits! Cheers! Chris
