Confederate Logistical Problems in the 1862 Maryland Campaign and Their Solutions

The Antietam Campaign

This chapter examines Confederate logistics in Maryland. It considers the full range of logistical problems Lee faced in the areas of ordnance, commissary, and quartermaster supply, and shows that the Army of Northern Virginia suffered to a degree that calls into question Lee's decision to undertake an active offensive campaign. Moving beyond the specific events of September 1862, the chapter demonstrates that pervasive revulsion at the pitiful condition of Lee's soldiers helped bring significant change. By the summer of 1863, a series of reforms had improved significantly the Confederacy's ability to feed and supply its premier army.
