So many young men lost their lives during the Civil War. The Antietam Cemetery is being lovingly restored and preserved by the national park service. It is a sobering and hallowed place.

Our tour of the battlefield ended here. It was a very beautiful cemetery. Just seeing the areas where the battles took place as well as this final resting spot are very moving.

Last stop on the auto tour and please stop. The church was under construction. Seeing the union soldiers tombs is humbling.

There didn't seem to be much to see...not after Arlington National Cemetery. I was surprised that they did not allow Confederate soldiers to be buried there.

It's a typical civil war era national cemetery. It is a very solemn place and very well kept. Easy to find.
