This afternoon around three o'clock a severe wind and rain storm hit Antietam National Battlefield, Sharpsburg and the immediate surrounding area. Tree damage on the park is quite significant though, with one or two exceptions, damage to historic structures
Flag pole at the National Cemetery - many trees down.
"Chessman" outside of Philly Brigade Park got smacked by a tree.
The witness tree (sycamore) at Burnside Bridge is unscathed.
I was off today and got a call around five from Ranger Keith advising I make a beeline to the park with my camera.
Stay tuned for a fleshed out report, with photos, tomorrow.
