I was inspired to do this blog when tramping around Antietam National Battlefield.  The black War Department tablets mark the approximate locations of every brigade involved in the action and provide a brief description of their role in the action.  I hope to expand on the individual action of each brigade using these tablets, photographs, first-hand accounts, and other historical tools.  I will also provide biographical information on each brigade and look at how they affected the Battle of Antietam.  Each page about each brigade will be researched and posted in no particular order but Abram Duryee's brigade will be my first post.  I am currently coming down to the end of my semester and am thus very busy.  Please bear with me as it may take me some time to post Duryee's Brigade.
