The Journal is organized in five sections:
  • The Essays section contains original scholarly studies on aspects of the Maryland Campaign. The essay should be between 5,000 to 10,000 words and includes up to five images or maps.
  • In Their Own Words includes short essays on primary sources (e.g., correspondence) relating to the Maryland Campaign, (1,000 words).
  • Antietam Artifacts features images of Maryland Campaign memorabilia from a museum or private collection with a short interpretative essay (1,000-2,000 words).
  • Antietam Travels features essays describing a visit to a site related to the Maryland Campaign. The essay contains pictures and a description of that site as well as directions for readers to use when they visit. They can be well-known or little-known sites (1,000-2,000 words).
  • The Book Review section is where readers can learn about new as well as old publications about the Maryland Campaign (1,000-2,000 words).
