Camping at Antietam

It has been more than 150 years since the Civil War Battle of Antietam, the deadliest one-day battle in American history. More than 22,000 soldiers were killed, wounded or missing after 12 hours of brutal combat near Sharpsburg, Md., on Sept. 17, 1862.

But the Scouts of the Mason-Dixon Council haven’t forgotten. The 2012 Antietam Encampment featured 650 Scouts camping on what was the Confederate army line. The Scouts helped support the official 150th anniversary observance of Antietam by parking cars, helping out at living history sites, handing out water to visitors, giving directions and being available to provide first aid if needed.

The Scouts received the Resource Stewardship Scout Ranger Award for their service.
