Naval squadron shows up at Antietam

September 13, 1997

Even though the Navy didn't play a role at Antietam, re-enactors portrayed members of the James River Squadron, a Confederate Naval Artillery unit.

Lloyd and Leni Glassbrook of Byron, Calif., wore the blue uniforms of the squadron with which they have been involved for the last seven years.

The couple hadn't yet developed an interest in Civil War history when they lived in Hagerstown 12 years ago, they said.

Lloyd Glassbrook, 53, who works for the U.S. Department of Energy, was lucky to be in town on business this weekend.
