Overview

The Maps of Antietam: An Atlas of the Antietam (Sharpsburg) Campaign, including the Battle of South Mountain, September 2 - 20, 1862 is the eagerly awaited companion volume to Bradley M. Gottfried's bestselling The Maps of Gettysburg (2007) and The Maps of First Bull Run (2009), part of the ongoing Savas Beatie Military Atlas Series.

The Maps of Antietam breaks down the entire operation (and all related actions) into 21 map sets or "action-sections" enriched with 124 full-color original full-page maps. These spectacular cartographic creations bore down to the regimental and battery level and include the march into Maryland, the Harpers Ferry Operation, the Battle of South Mountain, the battle at Antietam, the retreat, and the fighting at Shepherdstown, as well as important marches and events. At least two-and as many as ten-maps accompany each "action-section." Opposite each map is a full facing page of detailed, footnoted text describing the units, personalities, movements, and combat (including quotes from eyewitnesses) depicted on the accompanying map, all of which make the story of Lee's raid into Maryland come alive.

This original presentation masterfully leads readers on a journey through the campaign that many historians believe marked the beginning of the end for the Confederacy. Gottfried begins with the position of the opposing armies after the Second Bull Run Campaign before detailing their joint movements into Maryland. Readers will stand with D. H. Hill on top of South Mountain as General McClellan tries to force his way through the mountain passes; surround, lay siege to, and capture Harpers Ferry (and ride with Col. Benjamin Davis's cavalry on its breakout); fight blow-by-blow outside the small town of Sharpsburg (53 maps) through the bloodiest day in American history; retreat from the battlefield; and revisit the final bloodshed at Shepherdstown.

Perfect for the easy chair or for walking hallowed ground, The Maps of Antietam is a seminal work that, like his earlier Gettysburg and First Bull Run studies, belongs on the bookshelf of every serious and casual student of the Civil War.

About the Author: Dr. Bradley M. Gottfried holds a Ph.D. in Zoology from Miami University. He has worked in higher education for more than three decades as a faculty member and administrator. He is currently President of the College of Southern Maryland.

An avid Civil War historian, Dr. Gottfried is the author of nine books, including: The Battle of Gettysburg: A Guided Tour (1998); Stopping Pickett: The History of the Philadelphia Brigade (1999); Brigades of Gettysburg (2002); Roads to Gettysburg (2002); and Kearny's Own: The History of the First New Jersey Brigade (2005).

    This is a "MUST HAVE" book on Antietam

    Savas Beaties "The Maps of" series makes available high quality detailed maps to the general public. Each book contains a series of maps with a narrative battle on the facing page. The multi colored maps maintain, as much as possible, the same scale in each set. The result is a battle history that is an enjoyable informative read and battlefield guide.
    Antietam maintains the high standards of this series and may raise the bar a little. This is a full campaign with maps for each major component.
    Map Set 1, covers the invasion starting on the second and ending on the 13th. Nine maps, using the same scale, allow us to easily track the position and progress of the armies.
    Map Set 2 - 7 is South Mountain. On most of these maps, the scale is 300 feet to the inch. A few are 600 feet to the inch and a couple uses a 10-mile scale. The action at Fox, Turner and Crampton Gap is presented in detail. Four maps cover the fighting on Frosttown Plateau. The maps coupled with the facing page's narrative this is an excellent history of this largely overlooked area.
    The capture of Harpers Ferry is the subject of ten maps. The scale varies from 1,050 yards to 360 feet depending on the subject.
    135-pages are devoted to the Battle of Antietam. Presented in a logical sequence, maps cover the approach, the action and the stalemate at dark. Given the area, the battle maps have a scale of 390 or 450 feet to the inch.
    The book ends with seven maps covering the Battle of Shepherdstown.
    In addition to the maps, the book contains an interview with the author, a complete Order of Battle, Endnotes, Bibliography and Index.
    This is the book Ezra Carman wanted his readers to have.
