Antietam....Shiloh and Gettysburg were probably the deadliest of the war.
Antietam was the bloodiest day of the war. However, there were more casualties at Gettysburg. The casualties were spread over three days, so the per day rate was lower. Grant got a reputation as a butcher in the move toward Richmond in 1864. The Civil War had more casualties than all other US wars combined.
