Antietam panorama: William Roulette farm house

Here's another view of William Roulette's farm house and spring house on the Antietam battlefield. It's a slightly different view from this one that I also took on a spectacularly sunny morning in early May. To the far left, the stone Observation Tower at the end of Bloody Lane can barely be seen. For all my interactive Antietam panoramas, click here. Below is a photo of 14th Connecticut veterans and their families gathered in front of Roulette's farm house during a reunion in 1894. The scene today has changed little since then or, for that matter, since 1862.
