Spend a good hour here and walk among the headstones. This is a place that will tell you of a sacrifice that been made and will always be made. They will tell you not to forget. There is a sailor from the USS Cole buried there.
WE stopped here and at 1st thought we could not go in. The chapel at the entrance was being refurbished and there was tape and hard hat, with a sign saying no admittance - however, I realized it was for the chapel area only. WE walked around looking for the Maine headstones as the map directed us. I was sad...
It was the last stop on the driving tour of Antietam Battlefields. It made you stop and think about all these young men who lost their lives on this bloodiest battle of the Civil War. I only hope their soles are at peace.
