Today’s travel includes a day at Antietam National Battlefield with an Antietam Battlefield Guide. We have planned this Memorial Weekend visit six months earlier. Antietam National Cemetery has been decorated with many, many American Flags, and there will be Memorial Day observation. We recommend.

It's really incredible to see the number of soldiers that have given their life for the cause of their country. Spend a few minutes to see the cemetery, it is beautifully laid out.

Oh how I would love to be laid to rest here at this site. It is a most peaceful and beautiful spot surrounded by Antietam National Battlefield. Pictures here do not give justice to the serene and tranquil feeling you get when visiting.
