    I have examined a very clear copy and I honestly don't see any muddy footprints. Also, there don't seem to be any puddles in the obvious places (gutters). Judging from the fact that there is not as much movement blurring as would be expected, a small lens apeture and quick exposure was probably used which could have only have been accomplished in bright sunlight. Also note the relative absence of shadows. Bright light and small shadows indicate the time to be mid-day. Perhaps this could narrow down the identity to units that passed through town around noon.
    The street looks like it may be cobblestoned to me.

      Pards, I grew up in Frederick and know Patrick street very well. As a matter of fact, my Dad and I are going to visit that same place. I was wondering if the museum sells that picture? I guess I could go there and find out. Just wondering if anyone knew? I would love to have that picture covering one whole wall in my house. Dan Morgan, 10th Va

        Skeet - I bought my copy (8 x 10) from the Historical Society of Frederick County, Maryland (#P0241). Cost was $25.

          Some good folks on AC have provided good primary source material for the weather at this time. There was a twenty degree drop in temperature in the days the Confederates were moving through Frederick. Cold fronts commonly have a rain wall preceding the drop. I have written NOAA for the actual precipitation records for the days preceeding the battle. It did rain in DC and Baltimore on three of the days from the 12th to the 16th.
