Fought near the small town of Sharpsburg, Maryland, the battle of Antietam effectively ended General Robert E. Lee's incursion into the North during the Civil War, and marked a major turning point in the conduct and tone of the War Between the States. Designed and developed by Brian Downey, this fine site contains a broad overview of the conflict, battle maps, a number of well-written articles on various aspects of that fateful day, and a full listing of the participants. Perhaps one of the most intriguing features of the website is the 278 official reports filed by military officers from both the federal and Confederate sides. Of additional interest is the Exhibits area, where visitors can read about important aspects of the conflict, such as those persons honored with the Medal of Honor, the experience of Captain Edward J. Willis on the front lines, and President Abraham Lincoln's visit to meet with General George B. McClellan on October 3, 1862.
