From the “Lost Order 191” to the final climactic charge by A.P. Hill, from the Sunken Road to the Burnside Bridge, the incredible Battle of Antietam included spectacular bravery, staggering losses, lost opportunities, huge stakes risked and lost and all facets of leadership - from the courageously bold to the curiously stupid and timid. The titanic conflict waged along the banks of the Antietam creek on September 17, 1862 remains one of our country’s most significant battles.
Colonel (Ret.) Charles T. Knowles will discuss this momentous day, including the truly significant roles played by Rhode Island’s own – Generals Ambrose Burnside and Isaac Peace Rodman. Please register.
