  • Cemeteries have a deep emotional binding agent for all humans. Walking on top of the soldiers that fought for our liberties and beliefs was profound. We were lucky to stay at a Bed and Breakfast right...  more »

  • Took a day road trip to visit the battlefield. The visitor center had nice displays and a great gift shop. They were very accommodating to my mom in a wheelchair. Even had an elevator so she could see...  more »

  • Love history. But this place is nothing more than a big field with memorials scattered about..... I expected this when I got dragged along with some friends. Some people love this kind of stuff, I find this extremely boring. Not worth the drive from DC in my humble opinion.
  • Beautifully kept grounds, nice place to visit, especially if your into the history. Only downside was people walking their dog off leash and not picking up after them.
  • I had fun going to the battle of antietam reanactment. i also been to the battlefield itself what huge battlefield it is lots of monuments
  • History, History, and more history. Was a bit discouraged at seeing a sign with rates on it, but we were able to explore without needing to pay for any service. Smaller than Gettysburg, easy to traverse freely, and just as significant in American history
  • Nice experience. Everyone in the main office was very helpful and nice. So much history.
