Antietam Battlefield Lights Up

From the Nov. 18, 2012, Picket News.

The 24th Annual Antietam National Battlefield memorial Illumination will take place the first Saturday in December to honor the fallen in the battle.  It is put on by the Antietam National Battlefield, the American Business Women's Association and Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

It has been held since 1989 and consists of 23,110 luminaries, one placed every 15 feet along a 5-mile route throughout the battlefield.  Annually the event attracts more than 20,000 from 6 PM to midnight.
