Christian Grosh of Troop 8 in Hagerstown completed his Eagle Scout project over Labor Day weekend.

The Eagle project was chosen when Christian noticed that the small graveyard near the tee box of the sixth hole at Black Rock Golf Course needed to be repaired and renovated.

The project consisted of staining and repairing the split-rail fence, and mulching and erecting a sign donated by Black Rock Golf Course that has the names and dates of those buried at the site.

Jane Custer, division chief at Antietam National Battlefield, provided training on how to properly clean and repair the headstones.
