Antietam Battlefield: Bloody Lane
“A sunken farm road that was the site of a twelve-hour confrontation during the Battle of Antietam (1862). The fight at Bloody Lane took place on September 17 between Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee’s forces and Union Gens. George B. McClellan’s and Ambrose Burnside’s troops near Antietam Creek, outside Sharpsburg, Maryland. The Confederates were defeated, leading to Gen. Lee’s retreat back south. The road was called “Bloody Lane” because 23, 000 men were killed or wounded that day, making it the single bloodiest day in U.S. history.”
