...and every time I discover new items and details in your work. Like the burned down house with only two chimneys still standing, something I remember from black and white pictures of that time. Well done Chris. Great scenes and images again.

The Battle of Antietam ( Sharpsburg ) 17th September 1862

Timeline 11.00AM

Union troops under the command of Brigadier General Samuel D. Sturgis have been beaten back over the Rhorbach bridge having suffered severe casualties in the assault.


Meanwhile, the Second Division, Major General John Sedgwick commanding, with Major General Edwin Summer in attendance, have been met by a furious fusillade from Jackson’s last defensive line in the West woods. The enormous casualties caused have resulted in the first Brigade routing into their compatriots creating chaos.


Major General Lafayette Mc Law’s has finally got his Division organised and is advancing towards Sedgewick’s flank albeit at a slow pace ( due to another terrible dice roll).


Second Corps supporting artillery adjacent to the smouldering Mumma Farm are desperately tried to stem this advance, themselves under accurate Confederate artillery fire.


Burnside’s initial assault has been repulsed and Sedgwick is in trouble.

However, the sunken lane action has now reached a critical point with Brigadier General William French’s division poised to overwhelm the ragged defenders.

On to Richmond!
