Will mostly agree with the Orphan. The main roads had to be good -- we're in a well-settled area with roads long established and well-travelled. (This ain't the western hinterlands.) Even so, 35 miles in 19 hours, much of it at night, is quite remarkable and well beyond normal. I have to assume that the night was at least starlit if not moonlit.

Don't know much about Sedgewick, but Meade must have impressed him with a need for speed, and Sedgewick appears to have done a heckuva job in passing on that urgency (and following through).
