Experts from the fields of archaeology, geology, weapons technology, and pathology investigate this uniquely horrific moment in American history.

The Battle of Antietam was the bloodiest single day in the American Civil War - and in all American history. Just twelve hours of fighting resulted in nearly 23,000 casualties. Seventeen months after it began, the war had reached a decisive moment. Two determined armies had gathered near Sharpsburg, a quiet backwater near Antietam Creek in western Maryland. The forces of the Union were desperate to repel the South's invasion of their territory. The Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, its back to the Potomac river, was fighting for its very existence. Much was at stake. But just why was Antietam such a terrible killing field? Now the latest forensic techniques are shedding new light on the question.
