tarar@herald-mail.com A 180-foot cell tower proposed for the highest point of South Mountain would disrupt the landscape of Antietam National Battlefield and three other counties, preservationists say. The Maryland Department of Budget and Management wants to erect the tower on Lamb's Knoll. The land is owned by the state Department of Natural Resources, spokeswoman Heather Lynch said. Lamb's Knoll is along the Appalachian Trail on South Mountain, about one mile south of Reno Monument Road between Fox's Gap and Crampton's Gap. Lynch said the tower would service the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems, the National Park Service, 911 communications for Washington and Frederick counties, Maryland Natural Resources Police, the Maryland State Forest and Park Service and Maryland State Police.
