I read this book years ago, right after it was first published and enjoyed it immensely. Also, I have a direct ancestor who was a young Lieutenant in the 21st Massachusetts with Burnside's Ninth Corps, and was badly injured at Burnside's Bridge during the Battle of Antietam. I visited the battlefield in the fall of 1996 and literally had the entire battlefield to myself. It was an almost spiritual experience wandering over the landscape and remembering the horrors that Sears described in Landscape Turned Red: The Battle of Antietam. I am looking forward to rereading the book sometime this year, as well as visiting the battlefield again in spring-summer 2013.
