Attacks and counterattacks shifted back and forth around the cornfield near the Dunker Church near dawn. Union attacks eventually sliced through the Confederate lines, but the strong attack was not followed up with further action. Antietam has the single highest casualty toll of any Civil War battle, with the total number of dead, wounded or missing standing at 22,717 for one day.
