The Battle of Antietam took place September 17, 1862, and was the bloodiest day of fighting in American history. President Lincoln took advantage of the Union strategic victory to issue the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation a few days later. On Sunday, September 16, 2012, American History TV was live from noon to 8:30pm ET at the Antietam National Battlefield near Sharpsburg, Maryland, covering events taking place in conjunction with the anniversary. Guests included Civil War historian James McPherson, Abraham Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer, and Howard University history professor Edna Greene Medford.
