Proceeds From 150th Antietam Re-enactment To Be Shared With Maryland Boy Scouts

Organizers of a major Civil War battle re-enactment near Sharpsburg say they have enlisted local Boy Scouts to sell tickets.

Civil War Heritage Inc. says the Mason-Dixon Boy Scout Council will receive a share of the proceeds from each ticket sold for the 150th anniversary re-enactment of the Battle of Antietam Sept. 15-16.

The real sad part about these historical reenactments is that over 600,000 men, both sides, died to in the end, free 4 million slaves, and I have yet to see even one black person visit one of these reenactments. Talk about gratitude............

8:47-Pretty sure the guys fighting for the South didn't die to "in the end, free 4 million slaves," seeing as the South's economy was slave-based
