Before experiencing Antietam Battlefield’s annual Grand Illumination, visit the exhibits at Pry House and Thrashing Barn.  Walk the same halls as General McClellan and President Lincoln.  Experience the aftermath of the Battle of Antietam through the eyes of Civil War-era living historians.  Illumination gates open at 6pm at the entrance on Route 34.
