Antietam Scavenger Hunts … Why?

A bicyclist has the unique opportunity to zip around a battlefield park on smoothly paved roads while hunting for “intellectual treasure.” Armed with a map and a set of historical monuments to find, the bicyclist feels incredibly free to explore and enjoy a battlefield landscape. As any kid will tell you, it’s fun to do scavenger hunts! So for me, FUN is a good enough reason on its own.

But of course, we also learn about the Battle of Antietam when we study monument photos and then figure out where to find them. We are learning when we figure out why a monument stands at a particular  location. And we are certainly learning when we pause to read a monument’s inscription.
