Antietam: 8th Connecticut monument

8th Connecticut monument at Antietam in early February. (CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE.)
When the sun is shining and the sky is deep blue, Antietam can be a photographer's dream. One of my favorite spots is the 8th Connecticut monument, near where Lieutenant Marvin Wait and Private Oliver Case, both from Connecticut, lost their lives. My favorite spot is the William Roulette farm, especially early in the morning, when there are few visitors to the battlefield. I've often been the only person walking the field bordering Bloody Lane, a very eerie feeling on a foggy morning.
