Celebrate the Holidays in the Heritage Area with Maryland Milestones, Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center, Neighborhood Design Center, and all our friends! Now is the time to reflect upon a year of growth and partnership and we will look forward to our plans for next year! Wine, cheese, and some great company will make the evening sparkle inside the Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center gallery and our Heritage Center.
The Battle of Antietam remains the bloodiest one-day battle on American soil. On September 17, 1862, 23,000 soldiers became casualties in the first major Confederate attack on the Union during the Civil War. Every year, the National Park Service honors their sacrifice when it illuminates the Battlefield with 23,000 luminaries.
