The Bloodiest One Day Battle in American History



23,000 soldiers were killed, wounded or missing after twelve hours of savage combat on September 17, 1862. The Battle of Antietam ended the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia's first invasion into the North and led to Abraham Lincoln's issuance of the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation.

    Hiked the Burnside Bridge walk which crosses the historic Burnside bridge & loops around through a wooded area. Easy walk but the bugs were bad.
