Antietam Visit

Visited Antietam National Battlefield and Cemetery on July 7, 2007

The celebration of our nation's independence is not complete until we have attended the annual Salute to Independence at Antietam National Battlefield. Under a giant and inspiring American flag, over 30,000 people come every year to picnic, to hear American music from the Maryland Symphony Orchestra, to see howitzers fire on cue in the 1812 Overture, and yes, to experience fireworks. People come from miles around for this awe inspiring event at what I consider to be the premier National Battlefield.
