Subject: RE: Longstreet's Signal Officer

Message Detail:
As my article in G'bg magazine (No. 4) shows, there is sparse info on the ops of CS sigs in the campaign. The link between Duvall (Hood) and GHQ (Lee) on second day is the only solid piece. Basis for calling the cupola of the Seminary the HQ of the Confed SigC in the battle has not been established (unless that's where Duvall was signaling to); "Witness To G'bg" indicates that a sig "officer" was in support of Rhodes (Randolph?); alleged "first shot" fired at approaching signal man, presumably with Heth. With these bits and pieces, it's hard to balance the superb work done of Col. Cameron on the Union side.
