Burnside's Bridge

With the snow flying around here all day, it seems like an eternity has gone by since I was wandering around the battlefield at Antietam.  Only a week ago, it was a grey and blustery day, which was, in a way, appropriate.  Historic battlefield sites are mostly reincarnated as places of beauty, which is a bit ironic if you think about it, and Antietam is no exception.

But this is not a “tour of the battlefield.”  You may recognize one or two locations, but my object has been to capture the solemn, and sullen, beauty – A Sense of Place.
