In 1776, this great nation accepted that armed conflict was the only way to preserve our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.... From Antietam to Amiens, Okinawa to Anchorage, we have fought.Fallout 76 intro

Antietam is a tributary of the Potomac River.


In 1862, the creek was the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the American Civil War, the Battle of Antietam, and led to the Emancipation Proclamation's signing five days later. The location is mentioned in tandem with other sites where the United States of America has fought to uphold its principal values.


Antietam is mentioned only in the Fallout 76 intro.

Behind the scenes

Antietam is based on the real world location of Antietam Creek and its namesake engagement, the Battle of Antietam.
