Talonsoft's Antietam website:
    The Bloodiest single day in American History

    "Battleground: Antietam is extremely well done. Graphics, sound, and gameplay distinguish this from the numerous others in the category. It may not be the perfect Civil War game, but it's pretty darn close." - Gamespot

    "I heartily recommend Battleground 5: Antietam to anyone who has an interest in the American Civil War or computer war games. It's a mature and stable warrior worthy of a commendation." - Cnet Gamecenter
