Macon Newspaper Articles on Antietam
The Georgia Weekly Telegraph of Macon carried a brief, yet accurate, article on the Battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg)on the front page. In a later article in the same newspaper, some more particulars are given, this time with some inaccuracies - the wounded estimate is low, and Lee was not injured in the battle.
