A fascinating and moving experience...amazed at how open the ground is between Seminary Ridge and Cemetary Ridge also at the very short distance between the Copse and Bryans Barn...strangely easy to imagine the carnage at this point..

Antietam is easily one of THE BEST to visit !  Still looks like it did back then. Almost unbeleivably quiet and serene -very difficult to imagine the carnage when actually standing on the exact spot.

The postion of a small memorial on the spot where Confederate General Armistead was shot down moments after laying his hand on a Federal cannon a stark reminder of just how far some of the participants got..it's a long way to those trees in the distance...Sharpsburg tomorrow..

Welcome, Steve ! Gettysburg is soooo much better these days than it was (even 10  years ago ! ) I'm glad to see we got it in better condition for you.

       Take a picture of Triangular Field (near Devil's Den).
