Walking Antietam: Part 2 – New!

Walking Antietam: Part 2 – New!
Bloody Lane and the Mumma and Roulette Farms
1 session • 6.5 hours

Gain a new perspective when we join famed historian, Dennis Frye, for a narrated walk through the battle grounds of Antietam. Transportation via the FCC shuttle bus is provided so you can meet up with your guide. Spend the morning walking in the footsteps of the soldiers, both blue and gray, and see Bloody Lane from different vantage points. During a mid-day break, we’ll have lunch at a local restaurant and then head back to the battlefield. An afternoon stroll of the Mumma and Roulette farms in the center of the battlefield will illustrate how the war brought disaster to innocent civilians. Hear Dennis’ griping and personal story of the discovery of soldiers’ remains in an unmarked grave site and “feel” the tragedy of our Civil War. Following established NPS trails, this experience is designed to provide you with an understanding of the terrain as well as the ebb and flow of the battles.

Please note:
• Trip will depart from FCC campus (exact campus meeting place will be provided to participants one week prior to the trip date.)
• Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes as we expect to walk a total distance of 3 miles, during the course of the day, over gentle undulating terrain.
• Cost of lunch is included.
• No refunds after close of business on 9/10.

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 many books and is a nationally recognized preservationist.
