Very interesting video but what else is interesting if I remember correctly did the papers disappear after the war once they got in the Union’s hands

Old news. Best book on the topic is Eric Wittenberg's "Like A Meteor Blazing Brightly-The Short but Controversial Life of Colonel Uric Dahlgren"

Yes they did. They had been returned after the war by Francis Lieber to Sec. Stanton in Dec. in 4 packages. When they were asked for by the group that was to publish the ORs, they could not be found. However, they still have the photographic copies of the papers.
