My husband is a Civil War buff. This being the 150th anniversary of that conflict, he is in his glory. Today, there was a re-enactment of part of the Battle of Antietam, the bloodiest encounter of a horrifically bloody war. Here, the Confederate troops attempt to hold the Sunken Road. In the actual war, the soldiers from Connecticut--inexperienced and apparently expendable--were decimated at a different place in the battle. There's a cemetery in our town with the grave of a man from our town who died there. It's surrounded by a fence with a commemorative plaque on it--but the date of his death on the tombstone and the date on the plaque are off by a year!
