  • Antietam Battlefield, lest we forget

    I just thought this belonged in the SM Minute section,
    moreso than any other.

    The bloodiest single day in the Civil war, if not the entirety of US warfare. Although the battle actually happened in September,
    every year, hundreds of folks, many Scouts, place luminaries on the battlefield in the December season; one for each death or casualty. 23,000 candles.

    23,000.

    The drive thru is about five miles long. Leaves one thinking...

    Saturday, 6 December. If you're in the area, come on by.

    We will be visiting there for our company holiday party, but a week late. Shame we will miss it.
