Additional Description: On the valley floor in the distance is the Antietam Battlefield. Beyond the battlefield the Patomac River weaves around to the west. Many river crossing sites associated with the colonial, revolutionary, and Civil War eras lay within view. The National Road, which crosses South Mountain just south of the monument, passes off to the northwest to the right side of the picture.
