    Default Antietam National Battlefield, Sharpsburg, MD

    Antietam National Battlefield aka Battle of Sharpsburg

    Antietam National Battlefield is well known for its role in American history. Established in 1890 to commemorate the single bloodiest day of the American Civil War (23,110 casualties), the park attracts an estimate of 205,000 visitors each year. The battlefield, located in the Great Valley region of the Appalachian Ridge and Valley province, encompasses over 3,250 acres of farmland, pastures, woodlots and limestone forests. (From the official park website)

    Sample images will be posted as soon as time allows. I really enjoy this place, and highly recomend at least one visit.

    I do not have lat and long for this location. I will post as soon as I get it.

    This place is remarkably photogenic, great to walk around (or drive around) even if you find the Civil War to be incredibly boring.
    The pilgrims are weeping in heaven.
