An American 4th of July: Antietam Battlefield NHP Sharpsburg, Maryland. | Aquachigger
Join me as I attend the 32nd annual Fourth of July celebration of our American independence from Great Britain. This is typical of how we celebrate here in the US, complete with music and fireworks. This event takes place in the very fields of the battlefield where 23,000 American soldiers were wounded or died during the one day Battle of the Antietam (for you Yankees) or as they call it in the South, The Battle of Sharpsburg. The music is provided by the Maryland Symphony Orchestra and is very entertaining. The event is free and open to everyone.

Antietam: Civil War battlefield hike
I surprised to discover one is actually allowed to hike the Antietam National Battlefield, just outside Sharpsburg, Maryland. Indeed, the NPS web site ( ) even provides maps of the trails. So, I put together a hike ( ) that followed the course of the battle: The Cornfield Trail, West Wood Trail, Antietam Remembered Trail, Mumma Farm, Bloody Lane Trail (Sunken Road), Irish Brigade monument, Sherrick Farm Trail, Union Advance Trail, Burnside Bridge, Snavely Ford Trail and Final Attack Trail, hitting each sector of the battle at about the same time of day as it actually occured. I finished my day at the Antietam National Cemetery. Unfortunately, the start was quite cold & wet, and it was very windy all day.

Antietam, Maryland, USA
One of the best moments of my Civil War trip: Antietam (September, 11, 2015).
The Battle of Antietam, also known as the Battle of Sharpsburg, particularly in the South, fought on September 17, 1862, near Sharpsburg, Maryland, and Antietam Creek as part of the Maryland Campaign, was the first major battle in the American Civil War to take place on Union soil. It is the bloodiest single-day battle in American history, with a combined tally of dead, wounded, and missing at 22,717.
Although the battle was tactically inconclusive, the Confederate troops had withdrawn first from the battlefield, making it, in military terms, a Union victory. It had significance as enough of a victory to give President Abraham Lincoln the confidence to announce his Emancipation Proclamation, which discouraged the British and French governments from potential plans for recognition of the Confederacy.
Uno dei migliori momenti del mio viaggio sulla GUerra Civile Americana: Antietam (11 settembre 2015).
La battaglia di Antietam (nota per le fonti confederate come battaglia di Sharpsburg), combattuta il 17 settembre 1862 presso Sharpsburg (Maryland) ed il corso d'acqua Antietam come parte della Campagna del Maryland, fu la prima importante battaglia della Guerra di secessione americana sul territorio controllato dall'Unione. E' stato il più sanguinoso giorno di battaglia con oltre 22.000 perdite tra morti, feriti e dispersi.
Sebbene non concludente sotto un profilo tattico, in considerazione del fatto che le truppe Confederate si erano ritirate per prime dal campo di battaglia, rendendola così in termini militari una vittoria dell'Unione, Antietam diede l'opportunità al Presidente Abramo Lincoln di emanare il suo noto Proclama di Emancipazione, che scoraggiò i Governi Britannico e Francese dal poter potenzialmente riconoscere la Confederazione.
Per commemorare la battaglia è sorto il campo da battaglia nazionale di Antietam (Antietam National Battlefield).

Heritage Travel Campaign-Part 15 (Antietam National Battlefield)
Part 15 of my Heritage travel campaign.
I visited the Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg, Maryland.
The Battle of Antietam was the bloodiest single-day battle that has ever taken place on American soil, that involved American troops.
About 27,000 casualties (dead, wounded, missing/captured) resulted after the Battle took place on September 17th, 1862.
The Union force was about 87,000 strong, compared to the Confederate force of about 38,000. The commanding generals were George B. McClellan (Union) and Robert E. Lee (Confederate).
The Battle of Antietam is considered by many historians to be the prelude spingboard to the Battle of Gettysburg, which occurred the following year.
Though the Battle of Antietam is considered to be a strategic Union victory, it is widely believed to be tactically inconclusive, or a draw.
Though Maryland was a slave state, it was not a member of the Confederacy, but it was known to be a border state. Furthermore, this means that of the 85,000 men from Maryland who fought in the Civil War, over 21,000 of them fought for the Confederacy. There is a monument, the Maryland State Monument, which commemorates Maryland's troops from both the Union and the Confederacy. It is the only monument at Antietam that recognizes both sides.
In 1937, the Battle of Antietam half dollar was issued to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle, and can still be collected today on currency platforms such as APMEX:

More than 22,000 men were killed or wounded on September 17, 1862, during the Battle of Antietam, or, the Battle of Sharpsburg if you are from the South. Southerners named battles after the nearest town, whereas Northerners named battles after the nearest body of water or other notable natural land formation.
Like many battlefields, Antietam is haunted; ghosts from both sides of the War Between the States continue their fight over 150 years later. Apparitions have been spotted at Antietam; phantom rifle and cannon fire, shouts, drum beats, and war songs have also, been heard. Visitors have been fooled by ghosts who they thought were Civil War re-enactors. What were thought to be actors recreating a battle scene were actually phantoms that suddenly vanished.
Antietam is briefly mentioned in a new book that will be coming out in June 2018.
