The Battle of AntietamIn the Maryland Campaign of September 1862, the Hagerstown Turnpike, a privately built toll road, served as a valuable route for troop movements. The Turnpike possibly was a macadam road, constructed with layers of broken-down stones. The post-and-rail fence running alongside the Turnpike proved to be a frustrating battle obstacle.
