Remembering the 16th Regiment Connecticut Volunteers at Antietam

(p.169) All Who Went into Thai Battle Ire Heroes
The Antietam Campaign

This chapter describes the 16th Connecticut Infantry's role in the Maryland campaign, the efforts of its members to explain what happened at Antietam, and the postwar process by which their ignominious debut in combat was recast into a story of heroic striving. By the time survivors of the regiment gathered in 1894 to dedicate a monument at the place where Confederates of A. P. Hill's division had overwhelmed them thirty-two years earlier, gallantry and glorious sacrifice rather than fear and failure formed the dominant theme.
