September is for dahlias. Serious dahlia gardeners put a good deal of year round effort into these living forms of art!

Cannon Antietam

Cannon Antietam sm, originally uploaded by Chris S Thorpe.
One hundred and fifty one years ago today.....Antietam. The single bloodiest day in American history took place at the battle of Antietam. 23,000 killed, injured or missing after 12 hours of intense fighting at locations such as Burnside's Bridge and the Cornfield. Control of the 250 yd X 400 yd cornfield changed 14 times on the morning of Sept. 17th, 1862. While the entire battle was a "draw" the events of the day encouraged President Lincoln to issue his "Emancipation Proclamation".
