The Bloodiest Day in American History

"Every stalk of corn in the northern and greater part of the field was cut as closely as could have been done with a knife, and the slain lay in rows precisely as they stood in their ranks a few minutes before." Antietam, September 17th, 1862.

Probably the saddest time in our history, too. Makes me weep for those left behind that might not have ever known what happened to their loved ones.

Oh, my...thank you for this reminder. May they never be forgotten.
