Antietam: Remembering the fallen

Henry Aldrich, a private in the 16th Connecticut, is buried in 
Antietam National Cemetery.
Henry Aldrich, a 41-year-old blacksmith from Bristol, Conn., was killed at the Battle of Antietam 151 years ago today. He left behind a wife and four children. Aldrich, killed in John Otto's cornfield, is buried in the Connecticut section of Antietam National Cemetery. More than 200 men and boys from the state were killed or died from effects of wounds suffered at Antietam. Here's my downloadable Excel spreadsheet of Connecticut Antietam deaths. It includes regiment, hometown, place of burial, family information and more.
