Today marks the 156th anniversary of the battle of Antietam. On that day five men of Company D of the 8th Ohio were killed, or later died from their wounds. In addition, eight men were wounded, four of them serious enough to receive a disability discharge.

Lieutenant Charles A. Barnes
Sergeant John Briggs
Corporal William Farmer
Corporal William Mountain
Private Alexander Melville

Private George Apgar
Private Robert Foster
Private William Reynolds
Private George A. Scott

Private David Hindman

These men deserve to be remembered for the sacrifice they made that day, 156 years ago.
