When the co-authors of the Michigan at Antietam: The Wolverine State's Sacrifice on America's Bloodiest Day were compiling the manuscript, they had in mind a number of appendices to round out the story. The History Press did extend its normal book length at the request of the co-authors, especially at the importuning of Brian James Egen for whom the story has long been personal.
The published book reached 271 pages, far thicker than the normal THF volume. It contained five appendices: A, the Union and Confederate orders of battle; B, Governor Snyder's "Michigan at Antietam Day" proclamation; C, the John A. Clark story; D, Woodruff's Battery; and E, Michigan losses by regiment during the campaign.
The reader will notice the one-page Bibliography in the book. There was not room for the full document, as there was not for all of the appendices. Rather, the Bibliography is online and available via this blog.
Starting next and on each succeeding Saturday (til exhausted), published here will be the several appendices and materiel that were left on the cutting room floor. The co-authors hope and trust that these will prove useful and interesting.
