|We parked the motor home at the KOA at Harper's Ferry and drove the truck 17 miles up to Antietam National Battlefield near Sharpsburg, Virginia. Surprise, we hit that battlefield on the very day 150 years ago that the single worst battle of the civil war took place. Every two seconds a soldier died on this battleground. 23,000 deaths total in one day's time. There were re-enactors in costume everywhere we went. We drove through Sharpsburg and then through Shepardsville Virginia to get back to Harper's Ferry. We checked in with the National Park Service and rode a shuttle down to the town of Harper's Ferry. The Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers converge there also. The poor town of Harper's Ferry is frequently flooded and wiped out often, but the area holds a vast amount of history.
