Between two farm fields in Sharpsburg, Md., there was a sunken road, which Confederates used as a rifle pit until they were overrun by the Federals and slaughtered.

speaking of the civil war; you people in georgia should be so very proud of your state and the citizens efforts to secure sumpter(andersonville). i have been to many places in the u.s. but never have i been so proud of my home state (INDIANA) for putting up the monument in honor of the dead. it really did make me want to learn more about the civil war and i would encourage everyone to go and to see this monumental place where so many dead will be forever young.
