NPS Antietam Booklet online
- I was trying to locate a formal announcement by NPS of the 40-acre Cornfield purchase.
No such luck, but I did notice the old (1961) Antietam park booklet is online.

- Thanks Tom! Considering tomorrow is the 141st anniversary of the battle, I am
glad to see some activity on this list.
I recently gave my talk on the 128th Pa at the GAR museum in Philly , so these
guys have been on my mind alot recently. On Sat, I gave a tour of Montgomery
Cem to some local boy scouts and politicians. In Montgomery Cem are several
soldiers who fought at Antietam, many of the 51st Pa, to include of course,
General (then Colonel) John Hartranft.
