      Hagerstown just had some nice CW markers put up around the town. I
      think Roger Keller did them.

      A little known fact about Rose Hill. E.M. Recher, the first
      photographer to take post-war Antietam battlefield photos, is buried in
      Rose Hill. It would be nice to have a marker to him.
