VIDEO: The 150th Anniversary of the Maryland Campaign


Enjoy this new National Park Service video, titled “A Historic Journey — The 150th Anniversary of the Maryland Campaign,” on the military campaign of August and September 1862 during the American Civil War. This enormously consequential campaign by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee and his army occurred in Virginia, Maryland, and what is now West Virginia, and now encompasses five national parks and one Maryland state park.

Get the full rundown on multi-state Maryland Campaign special events, tours, history, photos, videos, maps — a copy of the Park Service’s Summer 2012 Sentinel magazine — and a cool, interactive timeline here.
