    Antietam Illumination

    Due to the lack of trained adults, (Scoutmaster, ASM) we will be doing this as a day trip on Saturday

    ohrbach Campground Site #3 at is reserved for Friday and Saturday.

    Fri 11/30/18 5pm: Meet at the IWLA-R Chapter House Friday evening (if you're camping two nights). 

    5:30pm: Leave as a group to Rohrbach Group Campground, 18316 Bridge Rd, Sharpsburg, MD 21782 and camp Friday night. 

    Sat 12/1/18 7:30am: Break camp and head to Antietam National Battlefield, 302 E Main St, Sharpsburg, MD 21782 to help set up the candles.

    Sat 12/1/18 Dusk: Drive through the battlefield to view the beautiful lighted candles.

    Sun 12/2/18 9:00am: Break camp, clean up the field, then stop at a restaurant on the way home for a hot breakfast. We anticipate arriving back at the IWLA between 11:00 and noon on Sunday.

    Meals TBD

    The time spent setting up and cleaning up will count as SSL hours. 

    Dress warmly in layers including hat and gloves. There is little protection from the wind on the field. Don’t wear fabric sneakers or cotton clothes!

    Adult in charge: Brian Zeranski

    Troop 1097 will support Antietam National Battlefield during this most somber yet beautiful event, the Memorial Illumination (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HjUxo4zk3Q or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTVAaQhyQZ8).

    More than 23,000 candles will be lit and lined up along the battlefield to pay tribute to the soldiers who were killed, wounded, or reported missing at the noteworthy Battle of Antietam. A half hour drive through the battlefield just after dark will reveal seemingly endless rows of candles to symbolize the lives that were lost that September day.  The Scouts (and family members who would also like to volunteer) will set up luminaries on "our field" throughout the day on December 1st and spend the weekend camping at Antietam.  SSL hours are available for this activity.

    Scouts and family volunteers will begin the day by putting the candles into the luminaries. After that, they will arrange the bags in lines on the field. We’ll eat bag lunches provided by the troop, probably have an hour or two of free time, then we’ll light the candles. There will be a short ceremony at the Maryland Memorial at dusk, after which the volunteers will be the first to drive through and see the Illumination. After we drive through the Illumination, the troop will enjoy a reception featuring cookies and homemade soup at the Washington County Agricultural Center, where we’re camping. A Scout is helpful, so we’ll also be assisting the reception staff with clean up afterward.

    In previous years, Troop 1097 was assigned to field #28.

    Riders finish in GettysburgResidents cheer Face of America

    Come dressed in your Class-A uniform to cheer on the bicycle riders as they arrive for their 2nd rest stop at Mary of Nazareth School on their journey to Gettysburg, PA.

    Join non-profit World T.E.A.M. in our annual Face of America bicycle and hand cycle ride to the historic Civil War battlefields of Gettysburg this April 26-28, 2019. Participating athletes can select between our classic two-day bicycle ride from the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia to the historic battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, or our two-day northern route, from historic Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Each route honors our military — veterans and active duty, both disabled and able-bodied — and celebrates the American Spirit.
