A Look at the History of the Antietam National Monument

The Battle at Antietam, also called the Battle of Sharpsburg, is the bloodiest fight in history on American soil. This Civil War battle changed the tone of the war and led to the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation, and today, you can visit the battlefield with a charter bus on a Maryland guided tour. This historic landmark attracts thousands of visitors every year. Watch this video to learn more about Antietam and what you can see at the battlefield.
