Subject: RE: The Beardslee Machine

Message Detail:
Dave, appreciate that detailed discussion of the legacy of the Beardslee, and the post-war events that allowed Myer an opportunity to play a role in sustaining and developing the field telegraph. While my interest at this time is narrow and focused primarily on what took place from a signals/telegraph point of view during the Gettysburg Campaign, it helps to understand the broader picture regarding how these two means of communication evolved as the war progressed. It is interesting to note that as helpful as the two books by Brown and Plum are on these subjects, there are considerable gaps in what was taking place from an operational point of view at various times, including some timeframes during the two-month long Gettysburg Campaign. Therefore, some piecing together and some guesswork are necessary. That said, a reasonably detailed picture can be recreated from existing sources, and that is reason enough to be grateful.
