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.
Hosted by Patapsco Heritage Greenway, Friends of Patapsco Valley State Park
Latinx visitors to our area are an opportunity to engage a new audience in our mission, learn from Latinx audiences about their own stewardship efforts, and create more inclusive heritage tourism opportunities in the Patapsco Valley. Patapsco Heritage Greenway is planning a Festival del Rio Patapsco on June 21, 2020. This event is being planned in partnership with Friends of Patapsco Valley State Park.
