Antietam Landscape Photo Essays …

Learn the Landscape, Learn History!

Bicyclists are uniquely empowered to understand the Battle of Antietam, because we need to use natural and physical landmarks to get oriented on the battlefield. And in learning where we are, we can more easily imagine battlefield events and the human dimension of the experience.

I started the Civil War Cycling website, because I wanted to share the following secret: You can make history fun on a bicycle! Add a camera, a map, and maybe an easy to understand book, and you have a ready-made learning adventure. I hope that you enjoy the following articles (which are also listed in our website index).

How does a bicyclist stay oriented on the battlefield? Study the names and locations of significant land forms (e.g., hills, ridges) and landmarks (e.g., monuments, barns). Knowing these really helps!
