September 16, 1862 6 Turns ------------------[ Historical ]------------------ 6pm: On the evening of 16 September, as Hooker's I Corps was deploying on the western side of Antietam Creek, Pennsylvanians of Meade's 3rd Division (known as the Pennsylvania Bucktails due to the deer tails worn on the side of their kepis) bumped into advance elements of Evander Law's brigade (Hood's division). Two Federal batteries arrived. These, combined with the Bucktail infantry, forced Law's men to fall back to the East Woods. Before night ended the contest, however, some of Hood's Texans would stage their first reckless charge toward the East Woods to reinforce their comrades. In the darkness, both sides then fell into an unsettled sleep; for over 6000 men, it would be their last chance to dream of their home and family.
