Susan-

  I think that you are overlooking the contribution of the bugler from the 83rd PA, Oliver Wilcox Norton. Opinions differ as to who actually wrote what is now known as: "Taps."

  Some sources credit Butterfield alone, but my guess is that the two collaborated on it. Thus, I believe that Norton is due an : "assist."
