      Paula,

      On a separate issue, could you tell me...privately if you
      wish...where Croasdales Knoll on the Antietam battlefield is?

      FYI:

      Cheltenham Township Historical Commission Presents “Black
      Soldiers in Blue” a video documentary about Camp William Penn
      (the largest training camp for African American Soldiers during
      the Civil War), and the United States Colored Troops (USCTs). To
      be held on Thursday 2/11/10 at Curtis Hall, 8pm, 1250 W. Church
      Rd, Wyncote, Pa (just 2-3 blocks north of the Philadelphia
      border). Following the video, on hand will be Warren Bass, the
      filmmaker, Jim Paradis, historian and narrator, and the 3 rd USCT
      reenactors. Admission is FREE.

      If you need any information, you can contact me privately. I can
      give you the township website ( www.cheltenhamtownship.org ), but
      it is not up to date, and I couldn't find any info on this event.
      My information is directly form the Historical Commission. In
      addition, I have been a member of a task team to open a museum
      dedicated to Camp William Penn and as a member of the Delaware
      Valley CWRT we has raised money for the museum.

      Paula
