Rescue193UK..thank you very much for the wonderful comment. this is the location of a tragic part of American history....the Civil War battle at Antieham, Maryland represents the bloodiest single day in American history. I'm so glad that t was made a national park so we all remember.......to never let this happen again.

Wifey..you are so welcome...Yes Antieham is one of those places that cause "goosebumps", everytime I visit. The museum has photographs taked in the 1860's on the day of the major battle and you can walk out and see the same fields and buildings...nothing has changed except the unfortunates one's lying in the fields...I hope it never changes.....and acts as a constant reminder...

Beautiful scenery. May be I will have added a second comment here and there, but I do not want to be influenced by what others wrote, so I just look at your picture and write my reaction upon it!

Annaschnitfink...I'm so glad that you have provided me with you individual opinions upon my photographs.....I believe all comments (good or bad) help me improve my skills in a hobby that I plan to carry into my retirement....if I ever do retire...........
