Battle Anniversary Weekend

14 September 2007

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.

The official list for Park events comes from the Park Service. Also check out the Sharpsburg Heritage Day scene from the SHAF site or Sharpsburg Arsenal.

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?
