Best hiking trails in Antietam National Battlefield

At dawn more than 150 years ago, musket fire pierced the air and cannons thundered, 12 long hours later more than 23,000 brave men lay littered across the red stained battlefield at Antietam, as the sun set on the bloodiest single day in American history. Today more than more than 200,000 people visit Antietam National Battlefield each year to pay homage to those who gave their lives fighting for a nation divided. Antietam National Battlefield is a truly sacred place. The opportunity to immerse yourself in history and follow the trails of Generals Jackson, Longstreet, McClellan, Hooker and Lee is a way to pay respect to the ghosts of the thousands who lost their lives following those same trails.
