The 2nd, 7th and 12th totalled 24 companies, and in the Northern Virginia campaign they had 1,240 effectives (per the schulte orbat). Where on earth were they all, then?Munford had the 2nd, 7th, and 12th VA Cav. regiments (the rest of the brigade being detached), and these were very slight outfits so far as what they could muster in the field. At Poolesville several days before Antietam the 12th had about 80 riders (Dennis Fry), maybe a couple dozen of whom were killed, wounded, or captured there and near Sugar Loaf mountain.
Mr. Hoptak's book on the Battle of South Mountain says a few days later in the fight at Crampton's Gap, Munford's brigade; the 2nd VAC had 120 or so men, so this was an even smaller brigade by Antietam. No doubt after the campaign the units rendezvoused, and with so few men across the Potomac casualties would have to have been slight.
Numbers aside, regarding Antietam, is it known WHERE Munford's line was posted? Near the mouth of the creek?
Numbers aside, the Carman maps put Munford near Myers' and Snaveley's Fords:
