  1. The annual Memorial Illumination is "held the first Saturday in December because it provides a maximum amount of darkness and the battlefield leases about half the park to local farmers. The later start gives them time to clear their crops." Nearly 23,000 luminaries are placed to honor each soldier killed, wounded or missing during the Battle of Antietam on Sept. 17, 1862. "It's a tangible way to see 23,000," said Keith Snyder, chief of resource education and visitor services for the battlefield. "This was the bloodiest day in American military history. It's four times D-Day, six times Pearl Harbor and it's so hard for people to understand. So this way, you can drive through six miles of tour roads and see candles as far as you can see, each one representing one of those casualties. It's an amazing sight." "We have about 1,000 volunteers, which to me is the most amazing part," Snyder said. Of the volunteers, the largest are the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, some of whom came from beyond the Tri-State area. Snyder is most happy about the Scouts' participation because one of the battlefield's missions is to get youth involved. https://www.heraldmailmedia.com/news/local/antietam-national-battlefield-illumination-draws-thousands/article_829ca370-d7ca-11e7-bad8-4bc21894a48c.html I will have to see this some day.
