A monument to the Fourteenth Connecticut Volunteer Infantry stands near a cornfield off Bloody Lane in the Antietam National Battlefield Park. 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.
