Hello from atop the ruins of St. John’s Episcopal Church. Had a wicked time around Harpers Ferry and the civil war battlefield of Antietam. I love wandering any place of history and never realized how extensive the details of these historic areas are presented and preserved. Will be posting more gnarly pics on Instagram all day!
A little pre-civil war inspired #graffiti art of John Brown in Harpers Ferry, and the Confederate and Union symbols side by side. Long day exploring this town with @realpatmcguire that’s I’ve visited so many times as a child yet I’m still finding new things!
