An interesting review of the political and emotional times surrounding the battle at Antietam. I found it an easy read, but very little new from all the other histories of the Civil War.

This book was not strictly about the battle but also about the people too. I enjoyed the personal thoughts of the major players in history. This one is really for the battle buffs.

This is a very good book about the events leading up to, and the actual battle of Antietam. A must read for any Civil War buff.

The battle of Antietam wielded enormous influence over the course of the cival war. Although not a decisive tactical victory, it boosted the Union cause in profoundly important ways. James A. Mcpherson's engaging and perceptive narrative places Antietam within the broader context of the war, assessing major commanders, evaluating strategic decisions and movements, and explaining the battle's background as well as its seismic political and diplomatic consequences. Anyone interested in learning Antietam should begin by reading this book.
