Bright and early (well, probably dark and early) Saturday morning I’ll head down to Sharpsburg for the Heritage Day festivities in town and the anniversary programs at the park. I’ll spend some time at the Save Historic Antietam Foundation (SHAF) booth at the festival (outside Nutter’s Ice Cream Shop), so stop by and say hello if you get a chance.
I’ll be visiting with friend and SHAF president Tom Clemens, and also expect to see fellow bloggers Brian Downey, Mannie Gentile and John Hoptak this weekend, as well as CWTI’s Dana Shoaf who will speak about the 16th CT as part of the SHAF lecture series. I think most of this group will probably be in attendance at Ethan Rafuse’s lecture Saturday night. I also hope to take some of the ranger led tours on Saturday and Sunday before heading back home late Sunday afternoon.
I’ll be the guy in the green Jamestown Jammers ball cap.
