Welcome to the Inn at Antietam, a warm and welcoming bed and breakfast in the heart of Sharpsburg, Maryland. Innkeepers Miriam & Will Cunningham look forward to having you stay at the number one TripAdvisor Traveler Ranked bed and breakfast in Sharpsburg and one of the top three B&Bs in Maryland.
The Antietam National Battlefield and National Cemetery surround the Inn and honor those who fought here on September 17, 1862. In what became the bloodiest single-day battle ever fought in the U.S. and the first major battle to be fought on Union soil, Major General George McClellan narrowly defeated General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. This “victory” claimed a very steep price: more than 22,000 soldiers were killed, wounded, or missing at the day’s end. Towns near the line of fire were turned into army hospitals overnight. The battle, though, offered President Abraham Lincoln an opportunity to issue the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation which went into effect on January 1, 1863.
Come and and explore Civil War history in the local area: see the battlefields, town hospitals and various sights of war in Sharpsburg, Shepherdstown, South Mountain, Harpers Ferry, Gettysburg, and Monocacy.
