      Washington, D.C. – National Park Service (NPS) National Capital Region (NCR) Regional Director Steve Whitesell announces the selection of Susan Trail as the new Superintendent of Antietam National Battlefield. Trail begins her new duties on November 21, 2011.

      Prior to starting her new position, Trail served for the past eight years as the Superintendent of Monocacy National Battlefield, just south of Frederick, MD. In that role, Trail oversaw all park operations including interpretation, resource management, maintenance, law enforcement and program development. Trail also oversaw the completion of a General Management Plan for Monocacy and the construction of a new visitor center.

      Trail will be returning to Antietam, a park where she was the Assistant Superintendent for five years, from 1997 to 2003. Trail also worked as Cultural Resource Manager at the C&O Canal National Historical Park from 1992 to 1997 and as Supervisory Archeologist at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park from 1989 to 1992. Trail brings with her six additional years as an NPS contractor working as an archeologist on a variety of different projects in the National Capital Region.

      In her new role in Antietam, Trail will oversee a National Battlefield with just under 3,260 acres, a $3.4 million budget, a staff of 73 total employees, including 41 full time employees and 32 student or term employees, and annual visitation just under 400,000. Trail will assume management and day-to-day operations of the battlefield, as well as Antietam National Cemetery.

      Trail is a graduate of the University of Maryland-College Park, holding a Ph.D. in American Studies. Trail also holds a Master of Arts Degree in Anthropology from the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Anthropology from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. Trail and her husband, David, retired NPS, have a 14-year-old son, Nathan, a student at St. James School located a short distance north of the Antietam National Battlefield.
