      >> Folks,
      >> My son and I participated in the Park Day activity at Fox's
      >> Gap
      >> on Saturday. The MD Park Service is planning a living history
      >> event on the first weekend in June where artillery pieces will
      >> occupy some of the original ground where the opening portion
      >> of
      >> the battle was fought. The owner of the field where
      >> Bondurant's Jeff Davis Artillery was located is letting the
      >> Park use his land for the event. Saturday we cut out a
      >> non-historic tree line to restore the view and allow the
      >> proper
      >> appearance for the event. It is a great spot and I encourage
      >> all to attend the event in June.
      >> Also, this coming Saturday, April 12, SHAF is sponsoring a
      >> Work
      >> Day at Antietam. (We usually schedule a different day from
      >> CWPT so that we can get more done, have more NPS folks with us
      >> running chain saws, etc. If anyone cares about missing the
      >> photo op or the free tee shirt, disregard this message.) If
      >> anyone wants to join us for the Work Day, please let me know.
      >> We'll meet at the Visitor's Center parking lot at 9:00 and
      >> bring gloves, old clothes and water. Dress for the weather,
      >> we'll cancel if it is raining. It is likely we'll be removing
      >> more of the non-historic tree line between the Mumma and
      >> Roulette farms. See you there!
