We were halfway to Antietam yesterday, driving through West Virginia on what was a gorgeous fall day, when alas our friend’s car broke down in the middle of nowhere. The idea was to have breakfast in Shepherdstown, see the remnants of the last battle of the Maryland Campaign there by the Potomac, and then make our way to Sharpburg. Fate had other ideas, however. The most important thing is that we all made it home safely.
I promise more posts here this week.
