Salute to Independence 2010

For twenty-five years people from all over have been coming to celebrate their independence as Americans at there Antietam National Battlefield.




The Maryland Symphony Orchestra sounded great!



35,000 people relaxing and enjoying a beautiful day and great music makes for a delightful afternoon.

Then it got dark, but only for a moment...











Ranger John Hoptak enjoys the fireworks...


and a big finish by the Maryland National Guard (hit the play arrow)

Today the battlefield lay awash in the detritus left behind by our 35,000 visitors...



pretty tidy isn't it?,  we the have nicest friends and neighbors.



Hope to see you out here next year.


Just north of Sharpsburg,
Ranger Mannie
