The Battle of Antietam

Boonsboro, MD

September 7 - 9, 2012

Confronted once again with dueling 150th Anniversary events, the Mifflin Guard opted to attend the 'Maryland, My Maryland' reenactment in Boonsboro and so the 67th NY followed sending a record 17 men on the road. We formed First Company of six with the 61sth NY and some members of Company B of the 20th Maine. A strong but short monsoon interrupted our Saturday public battle and canceled the night tactical however the money shot, the Cornfield, went off perfectly early Sunday morning complete with a blood red sunrise piercing through dense fog. Sunday's afternoon battle for the public wasn't as dramatic but went off without a hitch.
