Recently people have been joining me on my Sunday Walks in Downtown Albany. Typically, I walk in Albany when I'm scheduled as a tour guide on the USS Slater (DE Docent). A slide show and a map are detailed at this blog entry. The USS Slater is now open. I plan on walking in Albany on Monday, Memorial Day, May 27. You can contact me at:

07/20/2012 - Antietam

There are several walks at the Antietam. Before you start walking I highly recommend that you check the visitor center for the guided ranger tours. 

This battle was one of the first in history that was extensively photographed.  I've included a few in the slide show (National Park Site that details Historic Photographs by Alexander Gardner).

The walk that I detailed includes the Mumma Farm, the Cornfield and Bloody Lane. The battle took place on a broad front.  A major portion of the battle was covered by this walk.  The other area (a short drive away) took place at the Burnside Bridge.
