The web page for the San Francisco Chronicle has the following poll:

America's saddest day

- September 11, 2001
- November 22, 1963
- December 7, 1941
- September 17, 1862
- Will still occur

The top response is, surprisingly and overwhelmingly, September 17, 1862. That's not a date I thought very many people would know.

I must confess, I had to look it up. On that date occurred the Battle of Antietam. 23,000 Americans killed, wounded, or missing in a single day.

I vote for that day.

We killed each other.

The worst part is that we kept killing each other for another three years. Antietam was just one of a series.
