Antietam Battlefield, located in Sharpsburg, Maryland, is the site of the bloodiest battle of the Civil War. In the span of 12 hours, about 23,000 soldiers were killed, wounded, or missing. Burnside Bridge, known back then as the Lower Bridge, was held by Confederates for the first three hours of battle. Union forces then took over the area, forcing the Confederates back towards Sharpsburg. This overthrow led to the eventual Union victory. Attach our Burnside Bridge Hiking Medallion to your hiking stick to commemorate the Union victory and the soldiers who lost their lives during this influential battle.
