In Scourge of War: Antietam, the second major battle expansion for Scourge of War: Gettysburg, players will take command of the Union or Confederate forces during the battles of Antietam and South Mountain in September of 1862. Antietam became known as the first major battle to take place on Union soil and the single bloodiest day of battle in American history. Incredible heroism and sacrifice on both sides made this one of the hardest fought battles in the entire American Civil War and also gave President Abraham Lincoln the opportunity he sought for the Emancipation Proclamation.

Historical documents are included for players to enjoy and understand one of the most important battles in the American Civil War.
