The Battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg)
My 2G Uncle was killed there: Justus Wellington. From Brookfield Mass.
My great-great-great(?) grandfather was a private with the 9th New York (Hawkins Zouaves) and I presume, with them at Antietam that day. He mustered in to Company A, but I am told through family history that he served with Company K, which was a small artillery battery. He survived and mustered out with the unit in 1863.
THIS is what happens in a civil war.
Most likely my favorite battlefield to visit. Along with Shiloh and Gettysburg. Be well all.
Our great, great grandfather was there. 7th Virginia Infantry, Kemper's Brigade, D.R. Jones' Division. He was seventeen and had been in the ranks for about a year. The 7th was on the Confederate extreme right and the O.R. states that they "were not seriously engaged" on September 17. There was a many a good lad on both side who was "seriously engaged" that day...
We trudge on.
I'm sorry. You're just plain wrong!
According to BLM and Antifa, we have systemic racism and the Civil War was never fought and Blacks are still oppressed and white people are the devil and ....
Exactly! It's, like, the most white privilege thing ever to be rational! Why, it's a disgrace!
Did a "Staff Ride" when stationed up there. Amazing experience. Humbling....
I have at least 7 relatives that I can document who fought in the Union Army. All Scots-Irish Tennessee mountain folk.
I understand I may have more who served in the New York Irish Brigade but I can't yet prove that.
My grandmother used to tell me stories told to her by her grandmother of what it was like in East Tennessee during the Civil War.
Please God, don't let this happen again.

What were Union soldiers fighting and dying for?
mmmm.............for hating Johnny Reb and his different views and him speaking American while the Yankees spoke "English"
For anyone interested, I highly recommend Stephen Sears' book Landscape Turned Red.
Based on current events, wrong side won.
I really thought this thread might make it to the second page before the inevitable ****posting and derailment.
Well you are half wrong. Small minds discuss persons. Average minds discuss events. Great minds discuss ideas.
I love to visit places like these, but I don’t foresee ever going to Maryland.
Using slogans of such nature indicates no mind.
Thanks for not playing.
Wednesday Bloody Wednesday.
