I am working on a painting of a young lady at Antietam. We live just a short drive from the battlefield. This summer is the 150th anniversary of the battle of Antietam. The area will be loaded with civil war reenactors this weekend, and the battlefield will be packed with tourists. I am not really into the whole guys running around with rifles scene. I find the dress of every day people more interesting. This is a huge trip for many people that show up to dress the part for the weekend. Hidden behind the artifacts are plastic tubs, smart phones, and coolers filled with 21st century conveniences.
