There were approximately 3,650 soldiers killed at the Battle of Antietam. That's 3,650 individual stories lost to a statistic. The Untold Civil War sits with Ben Myers who has rescued one of these stories and published it in his new book, American Citizen: The Civil War Writings of Captain George A. Brooks, 46th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry.
