-  Another copy is in the Fitz-John Porter papers, Manuscript Division, L.C., container no. 55. Handwritten note on verso reads as follows: There is very little in accuracy in this map. Porter is entirely misplaced & thrown some miles in front of his true position. Kings division of McDowell's Corps never reached the position assigned beyond Groveton. Kearney also is thrown too far forward. A map of the positions on 28" 29" & 30th was sent to the War Department when Gen. Belknap was there by Gen. Porter before this colored map was thought of-with the request it might be used in compiling any map of 2d Bull Run. The data on that map was verified by Confederate as well as our officers.
