Antietam Spring 2008

An afternoon drive to the battlefield provided beautiful light and a range of interesting battlefield views.

The trees are getting that hazy green look.

Fields are being prepared for planting.

Violets are appearing everywhere.

Blossoms fill the trees...

and images familiar to generations return once again.

There might be a place where spring is more beautiful, though I don't know where that could be.

Come see for yourself,

just north of Sharpsburg.

Beautiful pictures Mannie.

Jim and Don,

Thanks for the nice comments, but you know the pictures hardly do the actual place justice.

Pictures most definately do not do Antietam in spring time justice. I know!

Mannie, I just ordered that book on the Sharpsburg civilians by Kathleen Ernst that you recommended. Thanks for the tip!

You're going to enjoy that book.

It was great meeting you and sharing the battlefield for a morning.
