Hellcat, Great info. I had knowed of Gen. John Sedgwick being shot in the battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse. But just found out the weapon used was the Whitworth rifle. Also found out there was a Whitworth cannon, boasted an effective range of six miles.http://johno.myiglou.com/whitworth.htm

 Mark, I meet the author of the book, as I was at a meeting where he spoke. Mr. Ray gave a good talk on this subject. But sorry to say, I have yet to read his book.
