ADVANCE PRAISE FOR The Tale Untwisted

“Thorp and Rossino make a very persuasive case for McClellan having received the
Lost Orders in mid-afternoon and sending his dispatch to Lincoln at midnight on
September 13, 1862. If I were writing my Antietam book today, I would follow their
account.”
— James M. McPherson, author of Crossroads of Freedom: Antietam
and the Pulitzer prize-winning Battle Cry of Freedom

“This well documented and logical explanation of the controversial Lee’s ‘Lost
Orders’ debate finally puts the actions of General George McClellan in a proper
context. Before a single Union soldier took a step in response to any order based on
finding S.O. 191, Lee remarked that he found the Union army ‘advancing more
rapidly than convenient.’ Now we know why.”
— Thomas G. Clemens, editor of
The Maryland Campaign of September 1862, Vols. 1-3

“Gene Thorp and Alexander Rossino have written a clear, extremely well researched
essay exploring when Lee’s famous “lost orders,” Special Orders No. 191, came into
McClellan’s possession and how he responded to them. It is good history and anyone
with an interest in the 1862 Maryland Campaign will find it a fascinating and
illuminating read.”
— D. Scott Hartwig, author of
To Antietam Creek: The Maryland Campaign of September 1862
