In 1897 the Antietam Battlefield Board created and installed 217 cast iron markers—the Historical Tablets—on and around the site of the battle at Sharpsburg on what later became the Antietam National Battlefield (ANB).
Select a part of the Battlefield to view by clicking on the number of the map you wish to see or by choosing from the list below the map. We'll display the complete text of each Tablet on it's own page when you click on its location on one of 5 maps.
You can also see a list of all of the Tablets in the Tablet Index.
