So You Think You Know Antietam?: The Stories Behind America’s Bloodiest Day
By James and Suzanne Gindlesperger
Administered by the National Park Service, the Antietam National Battlefield contains nearly 100 monuments, each with its own story. So You Think You Know Antietam? honors those who took part in this darkest of days in our nation’s history by telling the stories behind the monuments.
§ Who designed the monuments and what do the symbols represent?
§ Why are no Confederate soldiers buried in the national cemetery?
§ What connection did Clara Barton have with the battle?
§ Who was Johnny Cook and what did he do?
So You Think You Know Antietam? answers the above questions and more. Readers will learn some of the lesser known stories about Antietam and the human side of war through poignant vignettes that reveal the ironies and tragedies not normally found in typical guidebooks. Featuring close to 300 color photos, 10 color-coded chapters and maps, and GPS coordinates of all monument locations, So You Think You Know Antietam? is a well-organized, attractive book meant to enrich the reader’s experience.
