Antietam National Battlefield

By spokesman | September 16, 2008

Antietam National Battlefield is near the C&O Canal  and is a must visit destination for bicyclists traveling on the Canal.  Touring the battlefield by bicycle has several advantages over walking or driving.  Biking the eight mile battlefield loop is quicker than walking and it is easier to see the monuments and plaques on bike than in a car.  When I rode the loop this weekend, there were several anniversary related activities including reenactors and a demonstration of Civil War medical treatments.  The medical instruments looked more like tools from a Home Depot than surgical instruments. 

Lincoln meeting wih General McClellan at Antietam

The battle at Antietam took place on Sept 17, 1862 and was one of the biggest battles of the Civil War.  The above photo shows Lincoln meeting with General McClellan at the battlefield.  Over 23,000 soldiers were either killed, wounded or reported missing in the one day battle.  The battlefield is at a remote location, so it has been mostly spared from development pressures (unlike other Civil War battlefields).  The battle was historically significant for several reasons including:

The National Park Service Antietam website and Wikipedia provide historical information on the battle.

The battlefield is close to the C&O Canal.  There is a large visitor center that shows several films and provides an excellent history of the battle.  From the Canal, the closest point is Taylors Landing which is about 5 miles from the visitor center.   Here is an excellent cue sheet for a loop ride from the Antietam visitor center that tours the entire battlefield and connects to the C&O Canal at two points.   The cue sheet is intended for cyclists who drive to the battlefield for a visit but cyclists riding the entire Canal can use it to plan a side trip to Antietam.

    A pretty remarkable place, I agree. Biking would be an ideal way to see it. Sorry we couldn’t have met, as we were there just there last week.

    The nature of the battlefield really does give a good feel for the operations, the fact that you can walk it. Did you make it to Gettysburg on your trip, as you were so close?

    Be a perfect place for an outlet mall.

    I guess you will want to place a facebook button to your site. Just marked down this url, although I must complete this manually. Just my suggestion.

    Thanks for the suggestion, it is on my list of things to do to improve the blog
