Antietam - The Bloodiest Battle

Have you ever heard of Antietam?
The battle of Antietam was the bloodiest one day battle in American history.
 Its hard to believe that over 23,000 men were killed, wounded or missing in such a beautiful place.

Another reason we visited this site was that my husband's ancestors owned the land at one time before the Civil War. 

A lovely place with a bloody history.
