On Memorial Day 2010, one of my sons and one of my grandsons spent the day at Antietam and Manassas enjoying the sunshine and fellowship. Here are a few photos.
I took the above photo from the observation tower at Antietam, and it shows the ground that my ancestors charged across as part of the 7th West Virginia infantry in Kimball’s Brigade.
The Rohrbach or Lower Bridge across Antietam Creek; made famous as “Burnside’s Bridge.”
Hercules (not really. It’s Stonewall Jackson after a vigorous program on his Nautilus equipment).
