The Civil War was a conflict filled with bloody battles, but one clash in particular echoed through time and is now remembered as the deadliest day in the Civil War: the Battle of Antietam. While the Union declared the battle a victory for their side, it was certainly a hollow one, with staggering casualties on both sides -- and a missed opportunity to end the war once and for all.

The date was September 17, 1862, and the Civil War had already been tearing the country apart for more than a year. As the tide of bloodshed approached Sharpsburg, Maryland, morale in both armies was at an abysmal low. Someone needed a decisive victory. What both sides got was anything but. Here's the untold truth of the Battle of Antietam.
