In the late 1880's and early 1890's John Mead Gould, sometime major in the Tenth Maine Regiment, attempted to contact every survivor of the Antietam Campaign of 1862. Because the campaign was so crucial to the outcome of the Civil War and because there were, some twenty-five to thirty years after the campaign, many unanswered questions, Gould wrote toe as many survivors as he could find to try to answer some of the many questions. In each case Gould sought to have the survivor retrace his steps and actions during the campaign and to trace on a supplied map the locations and routes each soldier and officer took. The result of this survey is one of the most important collections of materials relating to the Antietam.
