Next Monday is the 145th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam in 1862. This weekend will be a whirlwind of activity at the Battlefield and in neighboring town of Sharpsburg. Do get there if you possibly can – the events are fabulous for a student of the battle.
Events run Friday (today) through Monday. I’ll be in town for Heritage Day til about noon Saturday, then over to the Battlefield Park for the 1:30 Bridge/Final Attack tour, 4pm artillery firing, and 7pm Rafuse lecture. Do say hello if you catch me, won’t you?
