Kevin Weddle Discusses Antietam

This is Kevin Weddle, a professor at the Army War College, speaking to a distance learning class on the strategic implications of the Battle of Antietam before they go on a staff ride to the battlefield.  He has the standard Stephen Sears-influenced interpretation of McClellan and repeats the myth that Lee was told McClellan was given a copy of Special Orders #191 by a confederate sympathizer during the campaign.  Other than that, it’s pretty good.
