Antietam People

Find individuals and military units on the Maryland Campaign of 1862

There's at least a little information here on over 22,000 individuals, and pictures of many of their faces. The people in our database include all the officers in command positions at Antietam, from Generals to Lieutenants, but the vast majority are private solders and non-commissioned officers.

Perhaps obviously, we don't have everyone who was there, but we're adding people all the time. If you know of someone who was present, and we don't have them yet, please email the webmaster. For more about our long-term project to list as many of the Campaign participants as we can, see the Antietam Roster page.

We also have pages for each of the more than 800 military units which were present or near Sharpsburg that September. Find a specific unit or group of them with the search form below. For a broad view of the command structures and major components of the Armies, go see the Orders of Battle (military organization charts).
