Antietam, the deadliest one-day battle in American military history, showed that the Union could stand against the Confederate army in the Eastern theater. It also gave President Abraham Lincoln the confidence to issue the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation at a moment of strength rather than desperation.

Commemorate this historic battle with the smell of gunpowder in the air, the clashing of cavalry swords and the rebel yell during the daily battles, Civil War Living Historians and tours of the historic house and barn that were used as staging areas and a field hospital during the battle of Gettysburg.
