General William E. Starke Mortuary Cannon
Six Generals were killed or mortally wounded during the Battle of Antietam. The spot where they received their fatal wounds is marked today by a cannon, nose down in a block of stone, called a mortuary cannon. This particular cannon is dedicated to Confederate General William E. Starke who was killed in the West Woods area of the battlefield.
