Visit: Antietam Battlefield

Very interesting and sobering tour of the battlefield.  We rented a car (Enterprise picked us up at the campground) and did the audio CD tour of the battlefield.  The National Park Service does such an amazing job of keeping the grounds and honoring those who were killed and injured.

Monument to Clara Barton, the red cross at the base is made from bricks from the home where she was born:

The monument to Connecticut soldiers:

One of the upside down cannons marking a fallen General:

Burnside Bridge, the far tree was standing during the battle...amazing to think about what it has seen:
