A quick glance at the sky in this photo will tell you what kind of weather we had on our most recent trip to Antietam National Battlefield. :-) Despite that, I loved Dunker Church as always, and decided to take some new shots that showed different features of the surrounding area. Here, the church is at left, while West Woods dominates the scene. At right is the edge of the 59TH New York monument.
Two roads can be seen: the one on the right is Hagerstown Pike, and the one coming past Dunker Church is an extension of Smoketown Road known as “Confederate Avenue.” In the distance you can see part of the sadly decrepit David Miller barn. (Hopefully a restoration of this historic structure is in the works!)
