      Nonsense! He left the field in possession of the enemy, just like at Gettysburg. If Lee "won" at Antietam, then he "won" at Gettysburg, Bragg, "won" at Perryvile, etc.

      Technically speaking, Lee did "win" the Battle of Antietam/Sharpsburg.
      At the end of the day on September 17th, even though his army (ANV)
      had been battered almost into extinction, his opponent could only
      count a gain of a few hundred yards all along his line.

      Is it possible for the AoNV to "win" this battle? This would have to
      be done w/o major changes to the history of the battle. However, that
      night, the AOP would have to leave the field in possion of the AoNV.

      Any suggestions?
