The Union and Confederate signal stations are also noted. The line of battle is located east of the town of Sharpsburg on September 16; encompassing the town on September 17 (after the actual battle); and to the west of town on September 18th as Lee's Confederate troops retreated back across the Potomac toward Sheperdstown, W. Va.
