January 19th, 2020 by jacobrohrbach

Wow! This will be our fifth year of hosting the Civil War Lecture Series.  Since we started, we’ve raised over $1500 for the Save Historic Antietam Foundation through our summer fundraiser.  We have seven new guest speakers presenting and another outstanding slate of lectures scheduled at the  Jacob Rohrbach Inn.  Come learn from Antietam Battlefield Guides and other leading historians as they discuss intriguing topics of the Maryland Campaign and the Civil War during our summer lecture series.
