Sep 25 2019 Confederate Defense of the Sunken Road

Guest speaker, Kevin Pawlak, seeks to answer questions about the Confederates in Antietam's Sunken Road, such as: was it actually a good defensive position?; why did the Confederate position fall?; did its fall mark a missed opportunity for the Army of the Potomac?; and what did the Confederates do to seal the hole in their line? In order to answer these questions, he looks at the topic from the perspectives of terrain, tactics, and the commanders and their personalities. Kevin also urges people to remember that this fight did not happen in a vacuum, and the field of action for the Sunken Road extends much farther beyond the road itself.

Kevin Pawlak is a Historic Site Manager for Prince William County's Historic Preservation Division and serves as a Certified Battlefield Guide at Antietam National Battlefield and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. He graduated from Shepherd University in 2014, majoring in History with a concentration in Civil War and 19th Century America and minoring in Historic Preservation. Kevin previously worked at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. He is on the Board of Directors for the Shepherdstown Battlefield Preservation Association and the Save Historic Antietam Foundation. He is also a regular contributor to the Emerging Civil War online blog. Kevin is currently working on a study of George B. McClellan and the Army of the Potomac in the Maryland Campaign. He is the author of three books, including To Hazard All: A Guide to the Maryland Campaign, 1862.
