September 16th, 1862. George B. McClellan and his Union troops made their way towards Robert E. Lee and his troops in Sharpsburg, Maryland.
Once they arrived, McClellan attacked the South causing a vicious Confederate counterattacks through Millers cornfield and west woods.
Later, towards towards the center of the battle school, Union assaults against against sunken road pierced the Confederate center after a terrible struggle.
Late in the day, the third and final attack was pushed over a bullet stone bridge at Antietam Bridge. Just as the federal forces began to collapse the confederate right, the A.P Hills of Harpers Ferry helped push the Army of the Potomac once more.
The bloodiest day in history ended with a draw. But this helped Lincoln gain the "victory" he needed for the Emancipation Proclamation.
