Hellcat, you are correct I found this happened at Fort Stevens. There seem's to be some dispute over the actual event's. I am kinda guessing, but I think I read my first account of this in Civil War Time's magazine. There was a plaque erected in 1920 by survivors of the sixth army corp. I guess thier is no way to now for sure how far this shot actualy was. Mark, A confederate sniper rifle procured in small quantities from blockade runners, was the 45. caliber British Whitworh, fitted with a telescopic sight, it was said to be accurate at 1,500 yard's. Thank's for all the help. Pender
