      Came across this article on AOL about a Lee portrait that hasn't been displayed in public since Reconstruction. It will be shown at the Museum of the Confederacy as a part of the Robert E. Lee 200th birthday exhibit...

      Tom,

      Thanks for the kind words, but the best way to see the battlefield is
      still one of the ranger-led tours on those special weekends. Second
      best is some time with an Antietam Battlefield Guide...or perhaps
      running into Tom Shay, (of ABG poster fame) and eavesdropping.

      BTW, we are having another guide test at the end of January. Anyone
      interested can contact me off-forum at the email or phone numbers
      below. Thanks.

      Stephen
