The Tattooed Historian Presents: A New Look at Antietam

The September 1862 Battle of Antietam was the bloodiest single day in American history and one of the most significant days of the Civil War. Join us as we chat with historian Dan Vermilya for a new look at this incredibly important battle that shaped the course not only of the Civil War, but of the nation itself. Our conversation will cover many topics, including some of the myths about the battle and campaign, as well as why Antietam still matters today.

Dan has a book out about Antietam with the Emerging Civil War Series. It's entitled, "That Field of Blood: The Battle of Antietam." You can grab your copy here.

As always, we'll begin at 7pm upstairs at the Garryowen Irish Pub in Gettysburg. The event is free and open to the public. There will be full bar and food service as well, so grab a drink and some grub. For those who can't be there, it will be livestreamed on The Tattooed Historian's Facebook page.
