Going Home

My friend and colleague Mannie Gentile has a great post about the final journey home of a young soldier killed in action at Antietam 147 years ago this Thursday. The remains of this young soldier were discovered last October and today, a hearse left the Antietam Battlefield for the Saratoga National Cemetery in New York. Please see Mannie's thoughts on his blog, and the video below, which documents this very important, very moving ceremony.
