Union Veterans

Veterans Day...This monument marks the spot where the 124th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry re-grouped after crossing the "cornfield" at Antietam. History buffs are aware that this battle was the single bloodiest day in American history. On this Veterans day I honor my mother's great-grandfather who valiantly fought and survived the hellish conditions in the "cornfield" on September 17th of 1862.
