antietam struggle – a history & alexander hamilton’s view
There was a great struggle in the state of Maryland during the Civil War, over the control of a small portion of the United States called Maryland. The area in which this struggle took place was called Antietam, where the battle of Antietam took place. The reason for this struggle was because Virginia wanted to make a railroad connection between their state and Alabama to stop their northern enemy from invading them. The railroad blockage was convenient for the Confederacy, because they wanted to make a connection between them and the West Coast ports of California. Georgia wanted to extend their railroad into Virginia too. This railroad blockage by the Confederates forced them to invade Maryland, where Marylanders fought hard to keep their state free from invasion. The fighting that took place in this portion of Maryland was called The Battle Of Antietam.
This battle of Antietam was a controversial one. The reason for this controversy is because the South wanted to invade Maryland and connect their Confederate States of America with the West Coast. The North wanted to invade Maryland and make it a part of the Union. This would give more power to the Northern states, and would help them stop the Confederacy’s railroad blockage by force.

quotes from all four houses at antietam battlefield
I can barely remember the battlefield now because some of the hills have been leveled, but there is one spot on the battlefield that I will never forget. That spot is where my father was wounded. He was hit by a shell fragment and it came through his leg and out his side, across his belly and finally ending up against his hip. You see, he was standing in a heroic fashion to protect our colors and the color guard came upon him and another soldier had to carry him out of the fight. The battle of Antietam was over for my father but not for many others. Three hundred and fifty-eight thousand men stood in the field that day, and one hundred and ninety-two thousand left the field of battle dead, wounded or missing. The Battle of Antietam is the second bloodiest day in American history, losing more lives than the battle of Manassas and the battle of Bull Run combined. Many people fled to the hills on both sides, this left many men stranded in no man’s land.
