Our next stop - a walking tour of Shepherdstown field hospitals that emerged after the Battle of Antietam. Shepherdstown's population swelled from around 1,000 to over 6,000 people after the battle. A huge thank you to Kevin Pawlak, Education Specialist at The Mosby Heritage Area Association, Antietam Battle Guide, author, and Shepherd University alumn for the excellent tour!! #GTMCWartorn#CivilWar#thisplacematters @mosbyheritagearea

We visited the historic Wornall house today. A Civil War battle took place right here, and the home was used as a field hospital. For BOTH sides! Swipe to see a terrifying surgeon's kit that would have been used. Also, check out what the original "Game of Life" looked like! Apparently, it did not have cute little cars with pegs for your "children." #boring
And, check out the kitchen sink. Washing bottles would have been 1,000 times worse... #civilwar#lovehistory#lovehouses
9 days until the 154th Gettysburg Civil War Reenactment will take place in Gettysburg. On Sunday, July 2nd the battle of The Wheatfield will take place with the hay that is left standing in this picture.

#funfactfriday Originally derived from pink roses, true Green Roses are exceptionally rare. They are believed to have been used as markers for safe homes for slaves using the Underground Railroad during the civil war.
