Antietam is one of the best Civil War Battlefields to visit. Start your visit at the Visitor Center and then head out on the Auto Tour and you will find the battlefield's landscape looks very much like it did a 150+ years ago. If you have a chance get out of the car and hike some of the trails and that will give you a better perspective of the battle.
If you like wildflowers you can find them growing in special areas of the battlefield and there is a map available at the visitor center showing the locations of those areas.
You can easily spend a 1/2 day here and if you have a chance to attend some of the programs that are held at the Visitor Center or on the battlefield you will enjoy those talks and walks from the Rangers.
A neat and interesting place to visit anytime of the year!
