Rec'd: Col. Burnside and Col. Corcoran on Disunion

The folks at Disunion have some of their own aftermath of the battle posts going on now, including two concerning our own dramatis personae, Ambrose Burnside and Cump Sherman. First, a story of the capture of Robert Holloway, Burnside's valet. Second, a story about Private Conant of the 11th Massachusetts (Franklin's brigade, Heintzelman's division) captured on Henry Hill, that briefly mentions Colonel Corcoran of the 69th New York Militia, part of Sherman's brigade, who Conant shared a train with in traveling from Manassas Junction to Richmond and prison.
