Of course in any instance 35 miles is an awesome march far an entire corps of soldiers to complete in that amount of time. However, there are instances where marches of substantially shorter distances are just as impressive when one takes into account the quality of roads traveled, condition of the men, time of day, etc.

Ole, PVTClewell, I am glad that neither you took it that way,  but I felt it best to make certain with that last post that none would be left with that impression.

These last few posts have reawakened my inclination to make a more in depth study as to which was superior-the Federal corps system (smaller), or the Confederate corps system (larger) and its impact not only in battle effectiveness but on marches, supply etc.
