Antietam National Battlefield Tour


AIR DATE: Sunday, September 16, 2012
OVERVIEW:
Historians Brooks Simpson and Mark Grimsley lead a group on a day-long tour of Antietam National Battlefield, the 1862 engagement that is considered the bloodiest single day in American history. Visiting key locations at the National Park, including the Cornfield, Sunken Road and Burnside Bridge, the historians use the landscape and demonstrations to show what the battle was like for the armies on the ground.
KEYWORDS: Civil War, American History, Antietam, Union, Confederate, Emancipation Proclamation
