The town and Battle field both give you a good feel for what it must have been like in 1862. I would suggest that you start with the Park Vistory Center.

Today’s travel includes a day at Antietam National Battlefield with an Antietam Battlefield Guide. We have planned this Memorial Weekend visit six months earlier. Antietam National Cemetery has been decorated with many, many American Flags, and there will be Memorial Day observation. We recommend.
