Welcome to the Civil War Roundtable of Central Massachusetts

Late in the afternoon of September 17, 1862 the Union had finally crossed the Antietam Creek and had assembled for the final assault against the Confederate line.

Late in the after­noon of Sep­tem­ber 17, 1862 the Union had finally crossed the Anti­etam Creek and had assem­bled for the final assault against the Con­fed­er­ate line led by Con­fed­er­ate Gen­eral A.P. Hill. Union forces were repelled and were unable to reach Harpers Ferry Road at the crest of the hill as seen in this photo. Over the next two days Gen­eral Lee retreated back to Vir­ginia on this road.
