What we Saw

Dad, this cows for you. LOL

It might be a National Park, but there are cows and cornfields just like in 1862.

Clara Barton, Red Cross founder, made her first battlefield appearance here at Antietam. On the CD there's a harrowing story of her holding up the head of a wounded soldier to give him a drink when she feels a tug on her sleeve. A bullet passed between her arm and body and killed the soldier she was ministering to.
