|Would some of those sources happen to be a game? I can't rmember if I even saw the title of the game, maybe Modern War though I can't be certain on that, but while searching the web for first hand accounts to answer what Mark was saying about it being used by Butler during his Bermuda Hundred campaign I ran across a forum talking about the Gatling. What I got from the forum was it was for some video/computer game and the developers had it ready for use in 1861, the year before Gatling introduced it. Not sure if I was on this computer or my laptop when I found that forum, will have to check the histories of both.
Edit: Found it. It was this one. The Forum is called Total War Center http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=545388
