Some of you may remembr the "Blair Witch" project that came about back
in 1999. I happend to keep my copy of the Newspaper with the
'article' about this and in the process I scanned a photograph of the
Lutheran Union Cemetery and Church there in Burkittsville from the
The photograph is in color, but still, not all that clear having been
scanned from the Newspaper.
Point is, for the benefit of those who may not live in Maryland or are
not familiar with the geographic areas in and around Antietam/South
Mountain of which these areas all played a critical role in the Battle.
I've been to this church and cemetary many times in my youth, and
there are many people buried here from this time period and some/few
from the Battle of South Mountain.
