We Want to Hear Your Opinion!!

One of the goals for the Antietam Battlefield Guide Association is to provide the best possible interpretation of the Battle of Antietam for our customers and followers. The creation of this new website/blog for the Antietam Battlefield Guides is a major part of that, as this is designed to be more interactive with you.

In keeping with this new theme of having an interactive website, we will be introducing periodic polls in our posts, asking for your opinion! These polls will cover many different topics, ranging from asking you what you find interesting about Antietam to which part of the battlefield you want to learn more about. In the future, we may even advertise specialty tours and programs by asking your opinion on what types of programs you would like to see us offer. Stay tuned for updates, information, and polls, as we try to offer the best possible tours and interpretation to those who want to learn more about the crucial Battle of Antietam and the Maryland Campaign of 1862.

For our first poll, we want to know how YOU plan to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam this year.

So, what are your plans? We want to hear YOUR opinion!
