My research on the West Point officers who served at Antietam continues. Recently, I contacted the West Point Library to see when they began recording images of the graduating classes. I learned that they began to do this in 1857. Unfortunately they do not have the images for the Classes of 1858 or 1860. The Library copied the images of 53 officers from the graduating classes of 1857, 1859, May 1861, June 1861, and 1862. I can’t be certain but many of these are not on the internet as I have tried to google some of these relatively unknown men and not obtained any results.
