Format: Paperback
Coming off the success of their prior book with a similar name except dealing with Gettysburg (see my review here on Amazon) it was only natural for husband and wife authors James and Suzanne Gindlesperger to create another highly readable and visually appealing book dealing with another great Civil War battle.

This time around they have chosen to tackle Antietam. On that September day in 1862 approximately 23,000 men were casualties with over 3,500 paying the ultimate price. Now the well preserved battlefield stands as a monument to these men no matter which side they were fighting for or what their reason for fighting was.

Part history, part travel log, part pictorial reference this is a book that should be on the library shelves of anybody interested in the battle of Antietam or any student of Civil War memory. While not a good introduction to the battle itself this is a great book for anybody travelling the main park service roads.

While this book can certainly be read on it's own (that's what I did) it's value would be on the battlefield and for those interested in the dozens of monuments that commemorate various people, places, brigades, and more.

The book is broken into ten chapters each covering a section of the battlefield. Each chapter begins with a brief outline and includes a Mapquest map helping travellers keep their bearings. For each battlefield marker included there is a photo as well as GPS coordinates. Modern photos are sometimes supplemented by historical photos and artwork. The text accompanying each stop on the tour describes the significance of the subject and often times points out information about the physical monument including dedication dates and artist information. The four appendices cover Robert E.

Short and sweet descriptions about the monuments on the field is most useful. Each monument is accompanied by a picture and a brief summary of when it was dedicated and also a brief account as to what the monument portrays.

Format: Paperback
As a kid, I grew up very near the Antietam battlefield. I traipsed all over it, and read as much as I could about the battle, both then and as an adult.

How exciting to come across a book that would possibly tell me some things that I didn't already know. How disappointing it was, however, to find out this is really just a guidebook to the battlefield - and mostly just to the monuments at that.

Further, the description of the monuments are a tad on the boring side. They usually describe the action the regiment engaged in during the battle (and most monuments are at the regimental level), then a little something about who the monument was made by and when it was dedicated. It just reminded me of a really long list, with particular items the authors needed to check off.

Oh, almost forgot ... The maps are atrocious.

That said, it's definitely not that bad as a guidebook. I would definitely not recommend reading it on its own, however - unless you're a real die-hard Antietam fanatic.
