The Battle of Shepherdstown
The day started like any other. But little did the residents of the small town of Shepherdstown know that it would go down in history.
The sun had barely risen when the first shots were fired. The Battle of Shepherdstown, also known as the Second Battle of Antietam, was underway.
For hours, the fighting raged back and forth. The town was caught in the middle, and soon it was nothing but rubble.
When the smoke finally cleared, the casualties were staggering. Over 4,000 men had been killed or wounded.
The town of Shepherdstown would never be the same. And the residents would never forget that historic day.
