Gettysburg. The Confederate invasion of the Northern states was General Lee's last
great gamble. By taking the war to the Union he hoped to force Lincoln
into peace negotiations, or win support from the European powers -
watching events closely from across the Atlantic. Equally, Meade's Army of
the Potomac needed to regain it's fighting credibility after the setbacks
of Fredericksburg and saw this as an opportunity to redeem it's
honour. The clash of 150,000 soldiers from both sides would ultimately
decide the fate of the nation.

Bloodied But Unbeaten (The Battle for the Dunkard Church During the Battle of Sharpsburg, September by Chris Collingwood.
Described as the Deathknell of the Confederacy - Sharpsburg (Antietam to the North) was a savage bloodletting for both sides. It was said to be the bloodiest day of the American Civil War. In the painting, below the Dunkard church confederate General John Bell Hoods Texas Division - or what was left of it- stand in line of battle. In the distance Union Major General John Sedgwicks division can be seen advancing on the rebel lines. During the ghastly four hour struggle the Confederates managed to hold and then repel the bloodied remnants of Sedgwicks division back to the east woods and at about 10.30am, the carnage around the Dunkard church had ended. Eventually though, the Confederate forces were in retreat, loosing Sharpsburg to the Union but prepared to fight on for two and a half more years, bloodied but unbeaten.
