Antietam Battlefield, Sharpsburg MD
This stone sentinel is ‘Old Simon’ who is forever standing guard over his comrades at the Antietam National Cemetery. This resting place is absolutely beautiful from the castle-like entranceway structure that was designed by Paul Pelz, to the chiseled monument recognizing German citizens who served in the Union Army. Another wonderful feature is the tombstone index that is posted in a large binder at the front gate. Flipping through the book, we were able to find some familiar surnames, and then their corresponding markers.
