IMHO, they are the same road. The old road from Boonsboro to Sharpsburg
used to go right though the middle of Keedysville. There is now a
bypass - Rt. 34.
I've been reading about the building of the road from Antietam Station
to the Antietam National Cemetery. Interestingly, they called it the
National road. I'm guessing that was a generic term used because it was
a government road, which was a big deal at the time (1889).
