Lace up your hiking boots for a nice cool morning for a walk through the Eastern Front Battlefield.  You will be comparing how battlefields look today next to images by Union Civil War photographer, Matthew Brady and his staff.  This program will delve into why Brady is regarded as the Father of Photojournalism.  Meet in the Visitor Center parking lot.  This will be a 6-mile roundtrip trek through the nature trail system. No less than 3 stops are planned.  It is somewhat hilly terrain with wooden bridges, tree roots, and loose gravel.
