In Civil War Road Trips
I am planning out a sweet trip in August for some of my War of Rights buddies who have never visited battlefields before. Part of the trip will be centered around the IX corps and its activities during the Maryland campaign, but of course we will also detour up to Gettysburg and have a LBG give us a tour about the 28th Mass. Regiment. Here are the dates we are going: Thursday August 5th: Harper's Ferry and South Mountain Friday August 6th: Antietam Saturday August 7th: Gettysburg Sunday August 8th: Gettysburg And places of interested we plan to stop by on the trip: South Mountain: Washington Monument Fox's Gap (Reno Monument and NC monument) Gathland State Park (Cramptons Gap)(edited) Harper's Ferry: Harper Cemetery Armory/Footbridge St.Johns Church Ruins Antietam: Visitor Center/Dunker Church Cornfield and early morning fighting area Bloody Lane/Roulette Farm East Woods West Woods Burnside's Bridge and IX Corps Push Area 9th NY Monument Gettysburg: Day 1 Area (McPherson Farm + Seminary + Barlow's Knoll) Day 2 Area (Peach Orchard, The Wheatfield (28th Mass Monument), Devils Den, Little Round-top, East Cemetery Hill Day 3 Area (Culps Hill and Pickett's Charge Area)
