Ford the Potomac River at Boteler’s Ford and tour the Shepherdstown Battlefield on Saturday, September 19, 2009. SHAF president Tom Clemens and Tom McGrath, author of THE book on the battle, will lead the tours. The plan is for two crossings, one starting about 2:30 PM and another at 3:30 PM, in order to accommodate more participants. The event would then be opened to not just the members of Shepherdstown Battlefield Preservation Association and Save Historic Antietam Foundation, but also the general public.
After the crossing, a barbecue for the participants will be held at the Dunleavy house. A donation of $25 per participant is requested.
