Hood's Defeat Near Fox's Gap September 14, 1862


My latest book refutes virtually every author who has written about Confederate Brigadier General John Bell Hood and his two brigades that moved south of the Old National Pike and Turner's Gap in the Battle of South Mountain on September 14, 1862.

My analysis confirms that Hood's two brigades were NOT near Fox's Gap. Hood's correct location was near the intersection of the Rohrersville Road and the Old Sharpsburg Road about one-half mile west of Fox's Gap.

Hood's early evening attack was a short distance northwest of the present-day intersection of Moser Road and Reno Monument Road.
