The war to preserve the Union comes alive once again! As the Union North reeled from Gen. Robert E. Lee's invasion of Maryland, Abraham Lincoln looked to Gen. John McClellan and the army of the Potomac to stop the Confederate advance that was now within striking distance of Washington. The battle of Antietam was bloody and savage - 23,000 soldiers killed, wounded or missing after twelve hours of combat on September 17, 1862.
But the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia's first invasion into the North had been halted and the victory enabled Lincoln to release his Emancipation Proclamation. It was just after this battle that famed Civil War photographer Matthew Brady captured Lincoln in this photo with old political rival Gen. John Alexander McClernand, commander of the "McClernand Brigade" of Illinois volunteers and Allan Pinkerton.
