      Dear Stephen,

      I believe at one point there was a little snack stand somewhere near the
      Bloody Lane. Also, one post War photo shows a two story building abutting
      the fence on the Piper Farm property.

      I will send you what postcards I have here on file so you can review.

      Also, next time you are at Antietam NBP VC bookstore, pick up a copy of The
      Battlefield of Antietam, containing many vintage (turn of 20th century)

      Very respectfully,
      G E "Gerry" Mayers
      Confederate Signal Corps,
      Longstreet's Corps
