History of Antietam National Cemetery (- Locations from which bodes were removed)


Union soldiers, Battle of Antietam. Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

   



Map of locations in Allegany, Washington and Frederick Counties, Maryland, from which bodies were removed for re-interment in Antietam National Cemetery. Garrett County was not created from Allegany until 1872, so Oakland, Fort Pendelton, and Bloomington are shown in Allegany County. There were also 11 bodies brought from Fulton County, Pennsylvania.

The locations have been added to a map drawn in 1873 by Frank Arnold Grey entitled the New Railroad Map of Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia. The Washington County Railroad and the Western Maryland Railroad did not exist at the time of the Battle of Antietam.
