Dry Stone Workshop

September 4, 2013 - September 5, 2013
Antietam National Battlefield,
5831 Dunker Church Rd, Sharpsburg, MD United States
The Dry Stone workshop on September 4th and 5th will take place at the Antietam National Battlefield and will focus on restoration of dry stone walls on-site. The Battle of Antietam, which pitted the Army of the Potomac under the command of George McClel-lan against Robert E. Lee’s Confederate brigades, resulted in the single bloodiest day in American military history. Although considered a draw, the Confederate retreat at the end of the fighting allowed Abraham Lincoln to claim victory and led to the issuing of the Emancipation Proclamation. The Dry Stone Workshop is a two-day event. There is no single day registration. Find out more »
