  1. Was going to e-mail you, but didn’t see an address on the blog. My name is John Banks. I see you have me on your Antietam blog roll to the right. Appreciate that. As you know, I focus a lot on Antietam…and I am looking for more info on Martin Wadhams on the 8th Conneticut. He was from Canton, right down the road from where I live. Take care… Nice job on the blog.
