The Battle of Untietam: Setup

The Union right, the north side of the battlefield.  Because of dense terrain, the rebs were a little scattered on this front.  The Union's goal was to mass firepower and take out their opponents piecemeal. 

This is the other end of the battlefield, the Union left.  A small brigade of colored troops tries to take a well-defended railroad bridge.  

This is the center of the battlefield, where a strong Union brigade tries to storm across the creek before the Confederates can bring up their reserve units.
