thanks Kel!Don't know, never been...but Antietam and Harper's Ferry are close by, and I will vouch for both of them.
I agree 100%, DRW!Yes, you can spend a great half day exploring the gaps. The countryside is very rural and scenic. Start at Washington Monument state park for the exhibit on the battle and to pick up a brochure/guide (or get hold of one of the several good guidebooks first). Also take time to walk up to the Washington monument for the view. Drive around Fox and Turnee gaps and then head south a few miles to Camptons Gap and the Correspondents monuments. It's a great visit in good weather.
Great point. In fact I just ordered the Civil War trust recommended book on South Mountain so I'm going to come loaded for bear for sure thank youI loved it. Also, I like to pass through Burkitsville on the way. No museums, but it give a good idea of an 1860s village.
You need to read up before you go to South Mountain to get anything out of it.
