The Battle of Antietam was the turning point in the civil war, and it was also the bloodiest one day battle in American history. On September 17, 1862, after 23,000 men were killed, Confederate General Robert E. Lee withdrew his troops. This meant it was a Union victory. Union General George B. McClellan then kept his troops stationary for six weeks, essentially allowing General Lee’s troops to get away.
President Abraham Lincoln visited General McClellan’s troops from October 2 to October 4 that year and described the army as "McClellan’s bodyguard." Our Lincoln Tent Patch displays an image of this meeting between the President and General McClellan in a tent at Antietam. Wear our patch to commemorate the turning point of the Civil War, and the Union victory that ended the war.
