‘Antietam’s Wounded’ Print – Sharpsburg Historical Society



SHS – 25 Antietam’s Wounded (Garnet W. Jex – Sharpsburg Historical Society, Sharpsburg Maryland) print of September 17th, the war’s “bloodiest day.” Uphill from Packhorse Ford to Shepherdstown, moving an agonized stream of men and vehicles from the day-long battle four miles away across the Potomac River. The good townspeople shared the sacrifice and fear. With outer edges of historical notes and references around the border, this artwork is a history buff’s dream.

NOTE: The actual artwork is 18(L) X 13.75(W) X 0.25(H) but is backed with 16(L) X 20(W) X 0.25(H) cardboard and preserved in a plastic sleeve.
