Harpers Ferry Photos – West Virginia

Confederate Gen. “Stonewall” Jackson captured the federal garrison at Harpers Ferry two days before the Battle of Antietam. His plan (and that of army commander, Gen. Robert E. Lee) was to rejoin the Army of Northern Virginia along the ridges of Sharpsburg, Maryland. This page contains a small collection of Harpers Ferry photos.

The Bicyclist’s Ride to Harpers Ferry

Below, please find four Harpers Ferry photos that show how a bicyclist would ride south on the C&O Canal Towpath (from Sharpsburg), and then carry one’s bicycle up a steep stairway. The foot bridge connects Maryland Heights to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Once on the foot bridge, walk your bike into Harpers Ferry.
