Camp Milton Historic Preserve

On September 17th, 1862, Union General Ambrose E. Burnside's corps of 12,000 men attempted to cross a 12-foot-wide bridge over Antietam Creek. Georgian sharpshooters took up positions behind trees and boulders on a steep wooded bluff some 100 feet high and overlooking the lower bridge. Greatly outnumbered, the Confederate soldiers drove back several Union advances toward the bridge. The Union troops eventually crossed the 125-foot-long bridge (now known as Burnside Bridge) and continued their advance toward Sharpsburg, Maryland. The day of the battle is known as "the day Antietam Creek ran red' due to the high number of Union casualties. This tree was grown from a seed handpicked near the site of the bloody battle at Antietam Creek.
