NEW! Walking Antietam: Part 1 – The Cornfield, Dunker Church & The West Woods
1 session, 9 hours
Take a new look at the battlefield for a narrated walk through the battle grounds of Antietam. We’ll provide transportation from FCC via our shuttle bus to meet up with your guide. Spend the morning hearing an overview of the battle and walk the Cornfield area of the grounds. We’ll eat lunch at a local restaurant; entree and drink are included in the fee. Then we’ll head back to the battlefield to walk the West Woods/Dunker Church area. We will follow established NPS trails which will give you a feel for the terrain and the battles.
Note: Bring your walking shoes as we expect to walk a total distance of 2.5 miles over irregular, but not extreme, ground. No refunds after close of business on 4/9.
Instructor: Dennis E. Frye has spent nearly 50 years studying and writing about Antietam. As a native of the battlefield region and an actual “Dunker,” his distant relatives owned much of the ground where the battle occurred. Dennis retired from the National Park Service after more than a three-decade career, including 20 years as Chief Historian at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Dennis has written ten books and is a nationally recognized preservationist..
