Throughout the morning of the battle, fighting raged here along the Hagerstown Turnpike. At one point, Union and Confederate forces found themselves just yards away from each other on opposite sides of this road. Afterward, commander of the Sixth Wisconsin Infantry Major Rufus Dawes, remembered, "The piles of dead on the Sharpsburg and Hagerstown Turnpike surpassed anything on any other battlefield of my observation . . . my feeling was that the Antietam Turnpike surpassed all in manifest evidence of slaughter."
