On a hot September day, three-quarters of a century ago, one of the critical battles of the Civil War was fought over a meandering creek and fertile fields not many miles from Hagerstown, Md.
On Friday, in commemoration of that battle, known as the Battle of Antietam, or Sharpsburg, 20,000 infantrymen and artillerymen of the Twenty-ninth will be directed in a re-enactment of the battle by Maj. Gen Milton A. Reckford, adjutant general of the State of Maryland.
