Great stuff, as always. Isn’t that where the Yanks made their stand on August 30, 1862? :)

I don’t know if I’d describe it as a “stand.” Certainly they were overwhelmed across the Sudley Road on Chinn Ridge, and the Confederates allowed themselves to be sucked into the “whirlpool” of Henry Hill just like McDowell did a year earlier.

I guess it was a “stand” in some sense. Phil Kearney, at least, had an opinion that a very limited group did the “standing”. The Confederate command structure for that attack was not the best-designed and the effects ultimately showed up.
