      From today's Hagerstown Herald-Mail:

      FLOODS COULD DAMAGE BRIDGE AT BATTLEFIELD

      The historic Burnside Bridge is in danger of being damaged by
      Hurricane Isabel, Antietam National Battlefield Superintendent
      John W. Howard said Wednesday. "That's our Number 1 concern right
      now," he said.

      Built in 1832, the three-arch stone bridge could be under a lot
      of pressure from rising waters and debris floating down Antietam
      Creek, he said.

      After a thunderstorm about two weeks ago, a hole developed in one
      of the bridge's side walls, he said. Because of the storm, the
      entire park will be closed Friday. It may reopen Saturday,
      depending on the extent of the storm damage, Howard said.
