We really had an enjoyable, educational day and if you want more information about the battle at Antietam click on this link.
I also found out that on the first Saturday in December they have an illumination memorial where they light a candle for each casualty of that day! I will definitely be marking my calendar to go this year!!
I just wanted to share a few pictures of our day there....most are of the scenery and I added a little watermark to the pictures...just my name but let me know what you think.
|This is the Maryland Monument which pays tribute to both Union and Confederate soldiers from Maryland|
|This tree was by the Clara Barton Memorial|
|I believe this is the Miller Farm|
|Tree in the Mumma Farm Cemetery|
|The Sunken Road...also known as the Bloody Trail|
|Burnside Bridge...I could stay and take pictures of this bridge all day!|
|Antietam National Cemetery|
|Antietam National Cemetery with "Old Simon" in the background.|
The monument text says "Not for themselves but for their country"
We had a really nice day and even saw a few snowflakes. I am really excited for the next school break so I we can go exploring some more.
Thanks for looking and I love feedback!
