September 18, 2014 – Picture of the Day: 23,000 soldiers were killed, wounded or missing after twelve hours of savage combat on September 17, 1862. The Battle of Antietam ended the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia’s first invasion into the North and led to Abraham Lincoln’s issuance of the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation.

The Master of Disaster
PS: Stock tip – The S&P500 Stock Index will power ahead through September 25th and possibly to the Lunar Eclipse of October 8th, however, a very rocky road is ahead. October is fraught with peril and a 20% drop in equities is possible.
