I would like a research paper on the Battle of Antietam during the civil war in the United States. You will prepare an analysis of a Civil War battle using the Eicher readings and the attached outline for a 3-5 page (exclusive of title page and bibliography) double-spaced report, using Times New Roman in 12-font.

Battle of Antietam
The bloodiest single day in American history, the Battle of Antietam turned back Robert E. Lee’s first Northern invasion. Though tactically a draw, it was enough of a win to permit President Abraham Lincoln to announce his Emancipation Proclamation in its wake. When Lee’s adversary, Major General George B. McClellan failed to pursue following the battle, Lincoln removed him from command. Learn more about the Battle of Antietam.
