Be assured that use of the term 'expert' was not my choice. It was used in the CWRT's original emails, but note that I did not use ii within the email to this group.
I know quite a few people in other roundtables and have spent time hiking Antietam with many of them. They welcome people such as myself who are willing to prepare and present topics on Antietam. Based on the amount of preparation required, I guarantee that I don't do it for the money!
There will be experts along for the trip, including several Gettysburg guides and Stephen Recker (head of Antietam guides).
For the Gettysburg CWRT trip, I plan to donate half my fee to a fund we're trying to get underway. It will seek to replace General Nagle's sword on his statue at Antietam.

Congrats on being considered an "expert" on Antietam....
How did you manage to become so well known and contacted by CWRT
groups? A response privately would be acceptable....
