- May 27, 2007I'm sure Stephen Recker and other Antietam guides are routinely asked that question. Indeed, during last weekend's visit to Antietam, many members of the Gettysburg CWRT asked for book suggestions.
For a detailed explanation of the Maryland Campaign, South Mtn and Antietam, Sears' LANDSCAPE TURNED RED is a good choice.
The best and most thought-provoking history of the Maryland Campaignn is Joe Harsh's TAKEN AT THE FLOOD, albeit from Lee's prespective.
James Murfin's "Gleam of Bayonets" runs a decent second place to both above books.
The forthcoming publication of Ezra Carman's battle history will provide a long-needed detailed tactical study of the battle itself.
