Happy Memorial Day!

Hopefully, by now, everyone is having a great long weekend, time spent with family and friends, and enjoying the sun. I decided that I wanted to do something different this year. I went to Antietam National Battlefield which is about an hour north of where I live outside of DC. I brought my camera and tweeted informative nuggets for people about the battle. The goal was really to get people to think about why we have a holiday in the first place… those who fought to defend this country and made the ultimate sacrifice.

Enjoy the holiday and these photos from Antietam.
