Burnside's Attack Toward Sharpsburg

Creator:
Edwin Forbes (1839-1895)

This reproduction of a print by American landscape painter and etcher Edwin Forbes (1839-1895) shows soldiers under the command of Ambrose Burnside fighting at the Battle of Antietam, near Sharpsburg, Maryland, on September 17, 1862. Burnside’s failure to perform sufficient reconnaissance on the southern flank of the Union line caused him to attempt to take a bridge (subsequently known as “Burnside’s Bridge”) that was covered by heavy Confederate fire. The resulting impasse contributed to the tactical stalemate in which the battle ended.
