At a Glance
Join Dr. Bradley Gottfried, renowned Civil War author and Antietam battlefield guide, as he brings to life the Battle of Antietam through James Hope's five panoramic views of the action. As a member of the 2nd Vermont Infantry, Hope sketched as the Battle of Antietam unfolded. Later, he used his sketchbook to create paintings which critics called “breathtaking.” Whether you're fascinated by history, art or both, Dr. Gottfried's expert insights will take you behind the scenes, as the canvases depict the battle’s intensity and significance.
