The Bloodiest Day!: Battle of Antietam

Overview

The battle of Antietam on September 17, 1862 was the first major Civil War engagement on Northern soil, and it remains the bloodiest single-day battle in American history. Of the 90,000 troops that fought, over 23,000 were killed or wounded. Antietam also marked a significant turning point: General Lee's bold invasion of the North was halted, and the Union's success, though not exploited, gave President Lincoln the victory he needed to make his Emancipation Proclamation. The battle arguably sealed the fate of the...

Overview

The battle of Antietam on September 17, 1862 was the first major Civil War engagement on Northern soil, and it remains the bloodiest single-day battle in American history. Of the 90,000 troops that fought, over 23,000 were killed or wounded. Antietam also marked a significant turning point: General Lee's bold invasion of the North was halted, and the Union's success, though not exploited, gave President Lincoln the victory he needed to make his Emancipation Proclamation. The battle arguably sealed the fate of the Confederacy, even if the war still had nearly three years to run. This book accurately brings to life this significant and very costly engagement in highly accessible graphic novel format. It also includes eight pages of authoritative information placing Antietam in its historical context, describing the key players, the build-up to the battle and its aftermath.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Victoria Vogel
This impressive line of graphic novels illustrates some of the most decisive battles in American history. In Surprise Attack, the reader is presented an illustration of the mayhem, confusion, and violence of the bloody Civil War Battle of Shiloh. The myths and side notes of the battle bring the story to life. For example, Lew Wallace, acclaimed author of Ben Hur, was a Union General who led his troops in the wrong direction, causing them to arrive at a crucial battle five hours late. In The Bloodiest Day, the Battle of Antietam is described. The reader learns of the complexity in firing a musket rifle, which made it difficult to return fire quickly. The illustrations in both books are well done, offering a vivid portrayal of the course of events. Both books begin with a Who's Who section and a short summary of the battle. Both end with a summary of the events that followed the battle, as well as a glossary of terms, list of further reading, and index. Reluctant readers will find this presentation enjoyable and might even become interested in learning more about the Civil War. Middle school libraries would benefit from both additions to their history collections.
