October 1, 1862 - A vast grave yard

Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


A Vast Grave Yard.

The fields over which the battles of the Antietam ranged are dotted in every direction with graves. These graves are generally very shallow and it will be difficult hereafter to turn up the soil to any depth without disturbing the bones of those who repose in them.

Many unexploded shells have buried themselves beneath the surface and if these come in violent contact with a plow coulter they would certainly exploded and render ploughing a very unsafe work in such a soil.
