Sharpsburg, Maryland: 150 Years Later

The battle this weekend would shine light
upon a nation and soak that same land in blood.
If you are somewhere in the mid-Atlantic region over this next weekend, are obsessed with studying and understanding the Civil War and aren't going to be trying your damnedest to be in Sharpsburg, Maryland this weekend, you might want to check your pulse.

I'll be there, as will many friends of the blog (including alum-author Jake, past guest blogger Vanessa Smiley and stellar interpreter Emmanuel Dabney from over at Interpretive Challenges), working to help visitors find deep meanings on the landscape.

So, stop by the Dunker Chruch and wave hello to me. And find my compatriots all over the park, connecting the battlefield of yesterday to the world of today.

Find out all the cool things happening this weekend over at the National Park Service's site.

  1. Did I tell you that I am jealous?!

    Anyway, about 2:30pm on the 17th, look toward the southwest and spot the dust cloud rising in the distance. That would be Pender's Brigade coming up from Harpers Ferry!!
