September 14, Speaker Meeting

On Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 7 pm, Allison-Antrim Museum’s Speaker’s Meeting Series resumes in the German bank barn, 365 South Ridge Avenue, Greencastle, PA.  Ted Alexander, retired Historian of Antietam National Battlefield, will talk about “Antietam – The Aftermath.”

 

This September marks the 155th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam.  This was the bloodiest one-day battle in American history.  After 12 hours of combat on September 17, 1862, more than 23,000 men, Americans all, were killed, wounded, or missing.  Alexander’s talk will focus on the aftermath of the battle. Topics discussed will include field medical care, the impact of the battle on the civilian population, tactical and operational activities of the opposing forces, and other aspects of the post-battle period.

 

Alexander is the author, editor, or contributor to 10 books on the Civil War – among them, “Antietam: The Bloodiest Day,” (History Press, 2011).  He is, also, a contributor to a forthcoming book on Antietam's iconic Dunker Church.  Alexander is the author of more than 200 articles and book reviews for publications such as Civil War Times, Blue and Gray Magazine, and the Washington Times.  He has been a commentator on Pennsylvania Cable Network, Maryland Public Television, National Public Radio, and Antietam Cable.  Alexander is the co-founder and coordinator of Chambersburg Civil War Seminars, which was started in 1989.  Since its inception, this event has raised nearly $200,000 for battlefield preservation.  He also serves as the Historian for the Allison Antrim Museum.
