In his research for the book Artillery of Antietam, author Jim Rosebrock identified seven distinct artillery sectors on the field where the main artillery action was fought. We will discuss several of the key sectors addressing the terrain, opposing forces, leaders, and outcomes. Join us on Wednesday, June 28 as Jim Rosebrock discusses the Antietam Artillery Battle Lines.

A former chief of the Antietam Battlefield Guides, Jim was a contributing writer to the Brigades of Antietam and is the author of the Artillery of Antietam.
