Each general was animated by a different spirit---Robert E. Lee by duty, Stonewall Jackson by Providence, George McClellan by vanity---but, when their forces clashed at Antietam, all grasped the significance of the battle. "The fate of the nation will be decided here, by what happens on those fields in the next day or two," McClellan declares in C.X. Moreau's fictionalized account of Antietam.
