1st New Jersey Brigade Broadside – Col. A. T. A. Torbet Thanks His Soldiers for their Victory at Crampton’s Pass, Md. – September 14th, 1862 – “Your advance in line of battle, under a galling artillery fire and final bayonet charge, was a feet seldom if ever surpassed.”
This 8 ½ x 12 inch broadside printed in blue and red ink is headed, “Head-Quarters First Brigade, First Division, Sixth Corps, Camp in Crampton’s Pass, MD., September 15th, 1862.” There is a large blue eagle at the top with red letters “First New Jersey Brigade”.
The broadside was printed by W. B. Selheimer in Philadelphia… and it must have been a “rush” printing, as Torbet wanted to get this honor for his men to them as they were about to enter the battle of Antietam on the 17th. We have never seen another example of this broadside. It truly has a great look to it, having only minor faults.
