Ranger Brian Baracz stands in the Cornfield in Antietam National Battlefield Park where some of the fiercest fighting took place. One hundred fifty years ago, on Sept. 17, 1862, 100,000 soldiers fought in The Battle of Antietam, the bloodiest battle in Maryland history. Around 23,000 were killed, wounded or missing.
