Charles Town & Harpers Ferry, WV
June 2009
The last leg of our Western Maryland and West Virginia trip took us to Charles Town Races & Casino then to Harper's Ferry National Historic Park. Harper's Ferry is fascinating on so many levels. This pivotal location in the Civil War has played a part in the history of many eras.
