Gen. Robert E. Lee's Headquarters Monument bears evidence to Lee's 1862 visit. Do visit when touring Antietam.

It is a rather humble historic monument marking the general Lee's headquarters. It is not a "must visit" area but should be a destination for those more deeply interested in Civil War history.

This modest monument marks the headquarters of Gen. Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia during the Battle of Antietam. Just a couple of miles from town, and set back from the highway, it can be missed. Look closely for the small sign...More

Off the side of the road among a grove of oak trees. Gives you perspective as to where the generals were located during the battle.

The value of going the extra mile to visit this site is the perspective it gives as to the size of what happened at Antietam Creek; that the battle lines stretched 10 miles - 10 miles - and that there were 115,00 to 120,000 soldiers...More

You won't find this monument within the grounds of Antietam Battlefield Park. It's down the road in a field (as are a number of other historic spots/sites, actually). It's worth a visit, though. It was from this place that Robert E. Lee commanded his troops...More
