Antietam Photo Gallery – Views to Enjoy on Your Bicycle Tour. These photos are unique, because we group them into learning categories. That helps not only with learning, but also with planning a thematic bicycle tour.
Antietam Photo Gallery … Why?
Antietam National Battlefield is a beautiful farming community in Western Maryland. It is one of the best preserved Civil War Battlefields in the United States. I hope that this photo gallery inspires you to visit Sharpsburg, Maryland, the town closest to Antietam Creek, and the location of the most deadly day in U.S. history.
These photos are also helpful study aides when not riding a bicycle. Read the captions over the photos, and learn the names of monuments. The short summary that accompanies each gallery provides some historical context. Follow links to interactive quizzes and scavenger hunts.
For bicyclists who prefer thematic tours, you can use the following photo listing to design tours that highlight particular kinds of monuments. For example, as a Maryland native, my first bicycle tour focused on all Maryland regimental monuments — plus also, each of the battlefield’s state monuments. Please consult the maps provided with a gallery’s scavenger hunt if you want to plan a bicycle tour.
And then there’s the ultimate answer to our question about “why” — to have FUN.
