Short, but bright, days of color

The leaves are turning at Antietam National Battlefield. With the fierce drought of this summer no one was willing to predict what the colors would be like for the autumn. No one had very high hopes. But with the dip in temperatures over the past week the colors are becoming revealed . Despite the very dry summer and the stress the drought placed upon the trees it appears that we'll have a spectacular show of color this fall.

Join us at Antietam and celebrate autumn.

It just dosen't get any better than this,

Just north of Sharpsburg.
