I was fortunate enough to visit Antietam (for it's 145th anniversary) and Gettysburg within 2 weeks of each other. Taking nothing away from GB, but imho Antietam is the better of the 2 to visit for a number of reasons - # of visitors (GB this weekend was packed with tour buses, bikers, scout troups, tourists wondering if Culps Hill was Devils Den, etc), traffic, ease of walking/getting around, flow of the battlefield, etc. To me nothing is better than standing in back of the visitors center at Antietam and looking in all directions. Look in the dictionary for pastoral and you'll see that picture.
