[R] About error bars on barplots

Hi R users,

I have a question about adding uncertainty bars to stacked bar plots.

  year   A   B   C   Amin  Amax  Bmin  Bmax  Cmin  Cmax
 2009  40  45  15   30      61       23       56      14       17
 2010  36  41  23   26      54       22       51      22       24

I use the code below:

DF.refm = melt(subset(DF[,c(1:4)]),id.vars='year',variable_name='Legend')

fig1 = ggplot(data=DF.refm, aes(x=year,y=value,fill=Legend))+
  geom_bar(stat='identity',size=.5)+ theme_bw()+ xlab('Year')+
ylab('Percent (%)')

But I don't know how to change it a little bit. For example, how to add the
error bars on the plot, as is shown in the figure below? The error bar for
variable A ranges from Amin to Amax, the same applies to variables B and C.
Thanks for your help.
