SPRING 2014: THE HITT FAMILY TOURS
WASHINGTON, DC AND SURROUNDING AREAS.


Here is a little of what the Hitt family experienced:

 

On Thursday March 27 we toured some very cool and interesting Civil War sites:

Above: At Antietam Bryan could not resist walking into the field, checking out the rolling ground,
and walking toward the Sunken Road.
Following the direction that Bryan is approaching
from; on September 17, 1862 the Yankees attacked the Confederates in the Sunken Road
who were positioned in the Sunken Road just behind the fence in this photo.

On September 17, 1862 both sides suffered a horrific 25,000 casualties at the Battle of Antietam.

Antietam was a one day battle and is known as the Bloodiest Day in American History.

The Confederates were positioned in the Sunken Road.

The Yankees attacked from the left of this photo towards the fence on the left.

 

 

Above: Bryan, Cindi, Dakotah, and Kayla check out Brunside's Bridge at Antietam.

The Confederates held the area where the Hitt's are standing.

The Yankees were across the bridge on the other side of Antietam Creek.

The Yankees objective was to cross the bridge and capture the area. They eventually did, but suffered many casualties.

 

 

 

 

On Monday March 24 we were invited by the DC Police on a helicopter ride above Washington, DC.

They gave us a glimpse into the special work that they do and they also pointed out some the cool historical sites of Washington.

The helicopter crew monitors DC air space and ground space ... helping preserve law and order ... keeping folks safe.

Thank you DC Police for all you do and for the ride! It provided new meaning to the lyric, "Time For Me To Fly!

 

Above: Bryan, Dakotah, and I just before takeoff.

You will probably never see a picture of the King Memorial from this angle. Great photo Dakotah!

Great photo Dakotah! All I got to say is, GOD BLESS THE U.S.A!
