This Week in the Civil War

Sep 17, 1862
September 17, 1862 is known as the bloodiest day in American history. On this day, at the Battle of Antietam, 23,000 Union and Confederate soldiers were killed, wounded, or captured in a bloodbath that ended in a draw. Working in the midst of this chaos was Clara Barton, a woman who would become a legend for fearlessly tending to the victims of her generation’s most tragic events.
