I have been requested to nominate 3 to 5 threads from the Antietam / Sharpsburg Forum as candidates for a Brass Napoleon Award. As Forum Host it seems appropriate to gather opinions from those of you who have taken an interest in the Maryland Campaign and its battles. A special call out to @Andy Cardinal, @Saphroneth, @lelliott19, @Bruce Vail, @Wesley P Ellington, @67th Tigers, @Ole Miss, @Northern Light and @DaveBrt who frequently post. Please post your thoughts on this thread or by pm. I will be submitting choice on July 29.

I would like to nominate Brian Downey's great thread entitled "Private Witcher in the Cornfield at Sharpsburg" located here https://civilwartalk.com/threads/private-witcher-in-the-cornfield-at-sharpsburg.159394/

In the thread, Brian points out the value of re-checking previously sourced information, back to the first hand account. Although it was just posted on June 27, 2019, the thread has already generated some very good discussion.
