New York Monument 95
Photograph - Photography
Viewed through the bare branches of a tree in winter, the New York Monument stands atop a hill and is surrounded by hundreds of luminaries o 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.
