Bloody Lane 99
Photograph - Photograph
Once known as the Sunken Road, it became known as Bloody Lane after nearly 5,000 were killed in this area at the battle of Antietam. Each year, on the first Saturday in December, more than 1,000 volunteers place and light 23,110 luminaries over a large portion of the battlefield, one for each casualty of the battle at Antietam (near Sharpsburg, Maryland) on September 17, 1862. This was the single bloodiest day of the Civil War.
