  • Adam, I don't think that is the original house. There was an early house there at one time but during the battle there was a Confederate artillery battery where the house was. They were firing Mullane shells at the opposing federal artillery placed on the long hill known as Ferry Hill. The Federal artillery was firing back and several shells fell into the river and slammed into...

  • Tom, I was just discussing this today with Stephen. The Confederate troops had quite a few locals with them from the Virginia regiments. I would assume people like Henry Kyd Douglas would have mentioned the ford and road to Jackson. They didn't cross at the Antietam ford due to it possibly being guarded. The main force crossed at Blackford's Ford but there evidence of some of the...

  • If you are in the area just give me shout. I'd be happy to show you around that area. There was a large camp up on the bluffs following the Gettysburg Campaign as well.

  • That bridge was definitely there during the war. There is a smaller ford upstream a few hundred yards but the main ford near that bridge would have been at the Pry Mill. The ford is located just downstream from where the smaller feeder creek empties into the Antietam Creek.

  • I meant Gerry. Are you local? There was a very large Texas camp in the vicinity of the caves that was found many years ago.

  • Steve, You can reach it on foot but the best way is by bike. I think the quickest way to get to it is from Snyder's landing. If you ever want to see it, I'd be happy to bike along. The ride isn't that bad at all. Ian On Fri, Sep 14, 2012 at 11:19 AM, G E Mayers wrote: > ** > > > Ian; > > Thanks! Can the cave be reached on foot or ? > > > > -----Original Message----- > > From...

  • Killiansburg Cave has what appears to have two openings. The one on the right is the one that you would want to go into. It is much smaller than it used to be. Parts of it collapsed and you can no longer scale the chimney to the upper window. It is also full of dirt so the entrance is much smaller. There is a larger overhang towards Shepherdstown that is thought to have been used...

  • Scott, The largest spherical shells used during the Maryland Campaign were the 32lbers. There was only one battery that had them. I have found a few pieces on the Shepherdstown Battlefield towards the western side. It looks as though they were firing from Ferry Hill. The closest 30lb Parrott guns were on Maryland Heights overlooking Harper's Ferry. Ian Workman On Fri, Mar 30, 2012...

  • I would be interested in knowing if he mentions McCoy's Ferry or Cherry Run in his tour. Let me know how that goes. That sounds like fun!
