      Thanks for clarifyng who Barber was.

      No, we didn't get to Antietam Iron Furnace. Indeed, that is one area which I
      have yet to explore. I'd also like to see the aqueduct site which Walker
      tried to
      destroy. Plus, I've not yet visited the Monocacy battlefield. So plenty of
      reasons for another excursion!
