As of Wednesday, June 27, 2018, the East Woods property has been officially transferred to the National Park Service and Antietam National Battlefield. This property, approximately 5 acres, was purchased in 2016 for $265,000, with about $20,000 from SHAF. We spent another $23,000 to demolish the buildings and restore the land. It has now been planted with trees to restore it to its wartime appearance.
