1/4/20: On the way out of Antietam National Battlefield I wanted to stop at the Antietam National Cemetery. Across the street I found another historic graveyard, Mountain View Cemetery. The date on the gate says 1883, though I think some of it may predate that. It is rather large, with large old spruce trees like the ken seen here, and many very old grave markers. This one was one of the more interesting ones and I liked some of the perspectives it offered. The date on it that I could find was 18 something. So it’s at least 110 years old. Ill be posting more pics of this cemetery in the future as I took several. It was especially beautiful under a blanket of snow in the setting sun. It is located in historic Sharpsburg, in Washington county, Maryland
