If you are into the civil war this is a great place to visit. Lots of history here. This was the headquarters for McClellan. This place seen much activity. See how lives were changed after they departed and left the wounded behind.

I can see why General McClellan chose this as his headquarters because it is quite the perch on the hill. We live close by so we always visit on the 4th of July along with Antietam Battlefield.

Andrew and Mike descriptions of what took place on the grounds and in the house come alive. It was a headquarters and hospital with a lot of stories to tell not to mention the birth place of modern emergency medicine and antiseptic procedure
