Battle of Antietam
Sharpsburg, Maryland
September 17, 1862, 3:30pm to Dark

Late in the day, Maj. General Ambrose Burnside's corps pushed across a bullet-strewn stone bridge over Antietam Creek. Rather than commit his force in full, he sent them in small pieces. The 51st PA and 51st NY were the first to cross the stone bridge. More units would follow in the next hour, including the 48th PA, who would occupy their position until nightfall.

At a crucial moment in the battle, A.P. Hill's division arrived from Harper's Ferry, and counterattacked, driving back Burnside. This ended any chance of success by Burnside and his men.

During the night, both armies tended to their wounded and consolidated their lines.
