March to Antietam’s West Woods
April 2, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
A Civil War Trust Generations Event
Walking in the footsteps of soldiers at the focal point of America’s bloodiest one-day battle can be an unforgettable experience. Doing so with your son, granddaughter or nephew can help instill a lifelong passion for history.
Join us and the National Park Service for this 1.5-mile hike following the path of one ill-fated assault at the Battle of Antietam. Traverse the hallowed ground, much of it recently preserved by the Civil War Trust. Follow the attack to its disastrous conclusion and learn about the climactic events that directly resulted in the Emancipation Proclamation. We will culminate with a tintype photo demonstration and opportunities to appear in multiple photographs!
- – The event itself is free (but regular Park entry fees apply).
- – The event is open to all — with the hope that you will attend with someone from another generation.
- – This event involves 1.5 miles of walking over uneven terrain. Please wear appropriate footwear and be prepared for inclement weather.
