Because the month of April is now upon us, we are at the start of the busy 2012 touring season for Antietam. Warmer weather means that, not only are the trees and flowers are in bloom, but it as perfect a time as any to get out onto the battlefield to see some of the most hallowed ground in American history.
To prepare for our busy upcoming season, this past Friday evening, March 30, we held our spring battlefield guide meeting at the Antietam Visitor Center. We were very thankful to have new Antietam Superintendent Susan Trail in attendance. After discussing matters of how to continue improving our organization, our guides received certificates verifying their status as an Antietam tour guide. Because most of our guides were present for the meeting, it was also a great time for a group photo.
We hope to see you at Antietam soon. With the warmer weather and the historic 150th anniversary of the battle upon us, there is no better time to visit Antietam than now.
