Flintstone, Md., resident Susan Trail has been named assistant superintendent of the Antietam and Monocacy battlefields, park officials said Tuesday.
Trail, currently chief of cultural resource management at the C&O Canal National Historical Park, officially assumes her new duties Jan. 19. She will be stationed at Monocacy and will have responsibilities at the 1,647-acre park near Frederick, Md., and the 3,267-acre Antietam park.
Trail, 37, is a 17-year veteran of the National Park Service. She said she is looking forward to broadening her focus.
"I'm very much excited about it," she said. "I'll be able to look at all of the park operations. It's just a very different kind of job."
