Moonlight Over Dunker Church 96
Photograph - Photography
The historic Dunker Church, under a nearly full moon, is surrounded by hundreds of luminaries on the Antietam National Battlefield. Each year, on the first Saturday in December, more than 1,000 volunteers place and light 23,110 luminaries over a large portion of the battlefield … one for each casualty of the battle at Antietam (near Sharpsburg, Maryland) on September 17, 1862. This was the single bloodiest day of the Civil War.
