General Rodman's Division crossed the Antietam here at 1:00 P.M. on Sept. 17 at almost the same moment, other units in the IX Corps took the Burnside Bridge. Rodman's men marched up the draw behind you, on their way to the final action of the day on the fields south of Sharpsburg. For the next 500 yards this trail is parallel to Rodman's route of advance. Rodman was killed at the close of battle.
