Subject: RE: Demos at Antietam-Sharpsburg

Message Detail:
You already know about this demo, but, since a friend sent this to me, I am passing it along:

"BTW, there is going to be a Signal Corps demonstration at Antietam NB,
29-30 Oct. info below is from the Antietam NB website:

Signal Corps Demonstration

Date
October 29, 2005 - October 30, 2005

Every military organization in any era, in any army, must be able to do
three things: move, shoot and communicate. Signal flags (wig-wag) were
the cutting edge of technology during the American Civil War. Join us at
Antietam National Battlefield for a demonstration with South Mountain
State Battlefield - signaling to & from Washington Monument State Park,
seven miles away! Programs will be held at 1:00 pm each day."

I would love to attend this demo; however, our Round Table is going to Brandy Station that weekend. Whoever goes to Antietam and takes pictures, I would appreciate receiving copies if that is possible. I would especially like to have photos of signaling from Washington Monument. These will be useful for inclusion in presentations and in published articles.
