A walk on Smoketown Road, key Antietam battlefield artery

So much happened on and along Smoketown Road during and after the Sept. 17, 1862, Battle of Antietam. Troops streamed up and down this road, an artery that led into the East Woods and beyond. Wounded staggered back to aid stations and hospitals. Take a short trip with me on this important gravel road, usually overlooked by most battlefield visitors.

  1. I just drove out Smoketown Road last Tuesday. Had to pick up some downed limbs to get through. It is indeed a trip worth making.
