Join us Wednesday, September 13 from 6:30-8p at McClintock Distilling in Frederick to celebrate Scott Hartwig and the release of his latest book, I Dread the Thought of the Place: The Battle of Antietam and the End of the Maryland Campaign.

The book release party will highlight the decades-long effort put forth by historian D. Scott Hartwig, who has just published a seminal work on the Battle of Antietam. D. Scott Hartwig retired in 2014 as the supervisory park historian at Gettysburg National Military Park after a 34-year career in the National Park Service. He won the regional Freeman Tilden Award for excellence in interpretation in 1993, and was a key player for the design of all aspects of the current Gettysburg museum/visitor center.

He is the author of To Antietam Creek: The Maryland Campaign from September 3 to September 16, published in September 2012 by Johns Hopkins University Press, and the soon to be released I Dread The Thought of the Place: The Battle of Antietam and End of the Maryland Campaign, also being published by Johns Hopkins on August 22, 2023

Additional funds raised from ticket sales will go towards our work across the South Mountain Battlefield.
