Top of the morning to Sir Robert Moore,
There is a reprint available through the Soldiers and Sailor Hall (See website) which is located in Pittsburgh about the "History of the 14th Pennsylvania Volunteers Cavalry". The Times-Lifes Series on the Civil War's volume entitled 'Shenandoah in Flames' has the painting of the Charge at the Third Battle of Winchester (Sept 19, 1864). There were several art-posters of the same charge.
Colonel Schoonmaker's Medal of Honor is maintained at the military museum at the Virginia Military Institute.
The military archives center at the U. S. Army's War College has copies of the Colonel's letters. The Colonel in 1913 is the Chairman of the 50th Re-Union of the Battle of Gettysburg (even though his unit did not participate in the Battle) - there is a book that was published about the re-union. Enjoy, Pat
