History of Antietam National Cemetery (- Gates from Antietam National Cemetery)

Cemetery Gates, Antietan National Cemetery. Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Robert Wood & Company were responsible for construction of the fence and gates, which were in place in 1866. The wrought iron fence cost six dollars a foot, and a gateway cost $880. "It is substantial as well as ornamental, and its entire length is six hundred and six feet, eight inches without the gateway, which latter is twenty-six feet in width—-sufficiently capacious to admit vehicles to pass each other in their ingress and egress."
