Every Antietam Battlefield Guide brings their own unique perspective and interpretation style to every tour they lead. Their backgrounds, interests, and hobbies often play a major role in what makes their particular battlefield tour one of a kind. This can certainly be said of our newest Battlefield Guide (though he is no stranger to Antietam visitors), Mannie Gentile. One of Mannie’s passions is, and has been since a very early age, the world of toy soldiers. He often uses his creativity, and armies of tin and plastic soldiers, to colorfully share the story of the Battle of Antietam with the young and young at heart.
