        I heard Dana Shoaf speak. It was great. Kudos to SHAF for their great
        series of speakers. Really added to the offerings.

        Missed running into Brian Downey, and saw too few ranger tours. Great
        to see so many old-timers and new faces as well. It was a real party
        with things to do everywhere, but not overcrowded. Great job by all.

        Lots of Antietam Battlefield Guides out there, too. When is Tom Shay
        going to sign up? Heck, he's already the on the poster.

        Scott Hann was there is full uniform, sans General Ripley's left arm.
        If you ask him again he might tell you more about Hugh Irish. He knows
        more about him than he is letting on.

            Hi Stephen,

            Sorry to miss you Saturday. You musta had a million tours to lead,
            right? I saw Dana a few minutes before he spoke, so we may have passed
            as ships in the night :)

              Brian,

              I did a tour Saturday morning for some bloke from England who likes our
              Civil War better than his because his "happened so long ago and doesn't
              have any photos." It was a lot of fun, but with guys like Ed Bearrs,
              Tom Clemens and the NPS Rangers giving tours, groovy guys like you
              hanging out, and the SHAF folks giving talks, I ducked out after my
              first tour so that I could go play.

              Stephen

                I contacted the park office at Antietam and they provided me with contact information for a list of available guides. I did hire one of the guides who did a very good job. I believe that this was in 2005.
