Preservation and Commemoration at Antietam National Battlefield

Here’s Ranger Keith Snyder of the Antietam National Battlefield giving a lecture from the Gettysburg National Battlefield’s 2016 Winter Lecture Series. His presentation covers the history of the Antietam battlefield and the commemoration done on the grounds of that battlefield.

The video’s description reads, “2015 marked the 125th anniversary of Antietam National Battlefield, one of the five original battlefield parks created by the War Department. Since 1890, veterans, military groups, preservationists, and the National Park Service have all played a role in the creation, expansion, and preservation of one of the most pristine battlefields in the country. Join Keith Snyder, Chief of Interpretation, for a look at the evolution of the site of America’s bloodiest day.”
