This is a beautiful cemetery, if you can call a cemetery beautiful. You have to drive out of the battlefield to get to it- it's actually in the town of Sharpsburg. And the parking area is slightly down the road from the entrance to the...More

This should be everyones last stop after visiting the battlefield. This is the last resting place for many Union Soldiers who died in the battle. There is a book outside the visitors center on the porch showing those who died and are buried here.

The last and saddest stop on this tour. This is a lovely last resting place. Just makes it more haunting after listening to how traumatic the entire battle was on the last day of their life.

We stopped here as the last stop on the tour. It is very pretty and only Union soldiers are buried here. Not overly large so it can be seen pretty quick.

We visited the cemetery as part of the battlefield tour, well laid out, makes you realize how many people lost their lives.

This is another piece of interesting history. The grounds are well kept and there is a lot of information available to gain an understanding of the park without an interpretive ranger.

This would be the last stop on the CD car Tour, and appropriately so. Many lost their lives in this battle, and it is said that more men lost their lives in one day at Antietam, than ANY other battle. This cemetery is beautifully gated,...More
