of the Battle of Antietam
September 13 - 15, 2002
This season's major re-enactment, Antietam 140, was held on the Antz Farm not far from Antietam Battlefield. Seven us made the trip down for this big anniversary event, falling in with the 61st NY and 125th NY of the Mifflin Guard. The "Fox's Gap" scenario was held on Friday afternoon and we all had to get up in the wee hours of Saturday morning to do battle in the Cornfield. At a more reasonable hour that same day, we played the Irish Brigade on their assault upon the Sunken Road. Your correspondent stuck around the vicinity the next view days and was able to get some good photos of the real battlefield on the very anniversary of the battle.
