Battle of Antietam Here I Come

In a few minutes I'll be leaving for my annual trip to get together with family in North Carolina and this year am planning on taking a different route to get there, driving the National Road from Zanesville, Ohio, to Cumberland, Maryland, which isn't too far from the Antietam battlefield, or Sharpsburg if you're of Southern leanings.

The battle was fought in September 1862, and recently marked its sesquicentennial commemoration.

Looking forward to it.  I've only been there once before and that was iin the 70s.
