Haunted Bloody Lane, Antietam BattlefieldAntietam_LaRocca-59730012 Seeking Spirits From Long Ago at Antietam National Battlefield, Sharpsburg, Maryland

Antietam (referred to by the Union) or Sharpsburg (by the Confederates) is claimed by historians to be "the site of the bloodiest battle of the Civil War" which began on a hot, humid day on September 17, 1862 and spanned three days of killing and injuring over 20,000 soldiers.  On a visit to Antietam, when the air is still and quiet, you can sometimes  feel the spirits of these soldiers marching across the wide farm fields.  This is sacred ground. Yet the natural beauty of the Maryland countryside offers a solace to the somber battlefields where so many died so long ago.  

Some of the most notable haunted sites at Antietam are:

  • The Cornfield
  • Bloody Lane
  • Burnside Bridge
  • Dunker Church
  • Sites of field hospitals – many of the farmhouses on and around the battlefield were used as hospitals for the wounded and dying. 
  • The Pry House – was used for General McCellan’s Headquarters and as a hospital. Volunteers at the headquarters report loud unexplained activity throughout the house.

I participated in a paranormal investigation at Antietam where I photographed and videotaped the ghost hunt until 2 a.m.  You can view these photographs in my "Haunted Maryland" photo gallery. If you have any paranormal experiences at Antietam you would like to share with me, please contact me. Thanks for visiting.
