This is a great place for birding the place is just full of fields. I think I saw 20 or more Eastern Bluebirds in one group. Too bad they wouldn't all stay still for a group picture. Probably the most Bluebirds I've ever seen together. Other birds seen were the Carolina Wren, Downy Woodpeckers, and a group of Cedar Waxwings, various Hawks and some vultures.
The scenery and the history of the place made it a interesting trip. Some of the park you can drive thru and some we took our walk. I learned a lot from our visit. The Antietam Battle was the first battle druing the Civil War fought in the north... in Maryland. What I think is just awful is that it was the bloodiest single day battle in American history.. with about 23,000 casualties. I will always believe in PEACE. 23,000 men lost is just unbelievable to me.
This bridge is named after one of the Maj. General Ambrose Burnside. I love the style of the bridge and the stone work is wonderful.
I hope I have not bored everyone with my post on the Antietam Battle. For more great photos from around the world please click on my link for That's My World.
