I was lucky to attend a presentation about Antietam by Edwin Bearss. His PowerPoint presentation was one slide. He spent an hour going through the events leading up to the battle and then described the battle in such detail in a way no one else can do. Just amazing. The guy is still going strong and will be reading names (along with many others) of those killed during the battle at the Antietam ceremony next month. He was gracious enough to stand for a photograph.
