I have always sympathized with both sides; the soldiers I mean. But the Union generals who used a scorched earth policy on the South, which included murdering innocent women and children, I have no sympathy or time for. Hopefully their maker dealt with them in a just way when they left this world.

All war sucks. Sometimes it has to be fought, as in WWII, but it's always horrible.

Really? Have any such general orders been found?

The 15th North Carolina was assigned to General Cobb’s brigade during the Battles of Crampton’s Gap and Sharpsburg before transferring to another brigade. Four of my ancestors served in the 16th Georgia which was also in that brigade for those battles.
