The Rock Ledge is conspicuous in the Antietam documentary film shown at the visitors center. As your photos show, this battlefield feature remains virtually unchanged. Nice views.
These seams of protruding limestone are a trademark feature of the Washington County landscape. They drive farmers nuts when plowing.

Hagerstown Pike from the Miller Farm area south to environs of the West Woods.
I visited The Ledge on Sunday and posted a summary with photos here:
