"Not For Themselves But For Their Country"

Antietam National Cemetery, Sharpsburg, MD

"Here lie 4776 Union soldiers, more than a third unknown. Built by Maryland and other Union states, it was dedicated 5 years after the battle. In 1933 the battlefield and cemetery were transferred to the National Park Service."
