      Dear George,

      The Trail Graphics map of Antietam (available at the Antietam VC
      Bookstore) gives locations of many of the CW field hospitals.

      In reality, almost all the churches in Washington and Frederick
      Counties became hospitals after the battle. Kathleen Ernst's very
      compelling book about Maryland Civilians in the Civil War (which,
      IIRC, is also for sale there at Antietam) talks about some of the
      hospitals and even more importantly civilian casualties due to
      disease following the battle.

      Hope this helps!

      Is there a book or other document that lists the structures in
      Washington County, Maryland that were used as hospitals (field
      otherwise) during and after the battle of Antietam?

      If not it would be interesting to identify and map the existing
      structures in Washington County that were used during and after
      17, 1862 for that purpose.

      Happy New Year!
