This is big. 150 years! Shiloh was big on April 6, soon Gettysburg next year, but for now. History Network, Military Channel, etc should be doing a story per day on Antietam. I haven't heard any hype so far. Hope things are picking up in Hagerstown, Harper's Ferry, Shepherdstown WVA, and the Gap Towns. So many things: Death of General Reno (perhaps the best future general in the North); Lost Orders, eating green apples, Burnside's Bridge. To us buffs, bigger than the Super Bowl.
I'll be heading down to the reenactment on Thursday. Everyone come on by the living history village and visit with myself, portraying Maj. Moxley Sorrel, and General Longstreet at First Corps headquarters.
