Civil War Veteran

Company A
128th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry
1st Brigade, 1st Division, 12th Corps

Recruited in Berks, Lehigh and Bucks Counties

Battle of Antietam
Sharpsburg, Maryland
September 17, 1862

On September 16, 1862 Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan and his Union Army of the Potomac confronted Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia at Sharpsburg, Maryland.

At dawn on September 17, Maj. General Joseph Hooker's Union corps mounted a powerful assault on Lee's left flank that began the single bloodiest day in American military history.

Repeated Union attacks, and equally vicious Confederate counterattacks, swept back and forth across Miller's cornfield and the West Woods. Despite the great Union numerical advantage, Stonewall Jackson's forces near the Dunker Church would hold their ground this bloody morning.
