Let the Festivities Commence: Antietam’s 145th
Thank you God for roughly 23,000 casualties, for Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, James Longstreet, and George McClellan. Thank you for the Dunker Church, the Cornfield, Bloody Lane, and Burnside’s Bridge. Thank you for Lee’s steadfastness and McClellan’s bungling. Thank you for: “If Lee’s line was penetrated at any point the entire army would have collapsed” and “Perhaps McClellan could have seized the day if his attacks were better coordinated or used his reserves.”
I hope everyone has a fun day.
