Antietam Photo Shoot

With the recent marking of the 150th anniversary of the battle of Antietam, I gathered together some photos taken on my battlefield walk in the spring of 2010.

McKinley Monument

The inscription on the McKinley monument reads,

"Sergeant McKinley Co. E. 23rd Ohio Vol. Infantry, while in charge of the Commissary Department, on the afternoon of the day of the battle of Antietam, September 17, 1862, personally and without orders served "hot coffee" and "warm food" to every man in the Regiment, on this spot and in doing so had to pass under fire."
