**Happy Independence Day! Let freedom ring!!**
Antietam National Battlefield is a stunning place for many reasons, just one being that natural beauty is abundant. Even a casual drive produces many great photos like the one above, which shows the Visitor Center in the center distance. To its right is the New York State Memorial. The light-colored dot to the far left of the building is a water tower (not a monument!). There appears to be other tall obelisk-style monuments to the right, but I can’t determine what they are.
