August Field Trip -- Monocacy National Battlefield

The new date is August 4th.

Geoff Grant has arranged for a guided battlefield tour from 5:15-7:30 pm on Sunday, July 21. We will be lead by Ranger Georgia Etter, and, tentatively, we will tour three sites, the Best, Thomas, and Worthington farms with time for a short discussion and photography of each site. The tour ends at 7:30, which will allow an hour for photography of the battlefield at sunset (8:30 on 7/21). Members will need to be in a position to exit the park at 8:30, which is when it closes.

Family members are welcome to come with you on this field trip.

Please contact Geoff directly if you are interested in going. It is a chance to get some "insider information" apart from what we read on the historical markers at the sites. Geoff can answer any questions you have and will be in contact again with more information. Geoff's email is
