More than 23,000 Confederate and Union soldiers were killed or wounded during the battle. The landmarks—Burnside Bridge, Dunkard Church and Bloody Lane—remain largely intact. The Union victory at Antietam provided President Lincoln with the opportunity to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed slaves in the Confederate states and empowered the Union with moral authority.
