More pictures of the Sherrick farm

Here's some more pictures of the historic Sherrick farm on the Antietam battlefield. It was across this ground that Burnside's Ninth Corps advanced toward Sharpsburg on the afternoon of September 17, 1862.

The top view is a view of the house beyond the ruins of the barn. Below that is a nice shot of the house. The lower level (whitewashed) includes the cool spring house.

Next is a shot from inside the corn crib.

Yes, that's a four foot long black snake. He and I startled each other near the ruins of the barn.

the bottom most photo makes me wonder, how many generations of cattle has this old fence contained?

Thanks for the excellent photos, and all the previous ones too. These are almost as good as being there. Better in some ways, as you're finding some unique views most people never see.

Thanks also for the volunteering you do. I hope you hear that all the time!
