This stretch of road near the battle site of Antietam is known for a mysterious phenomenon. Folks say that if you put your vehicle in neutral at the base of the hill, the ghosts of Confederate soldiers will push it back up the incline. Rumor has it that the ghosts believe they are still at war and pushing cannons and artillery pieces. There also have been reports of laughter coming from the woods.
*NOTE* THIS IS A BUSY ROAD. PLEASE PUT YOUR FLASHERS ON AND BE SUPER CAREFUL IF YOU TRY THIS.
