    It's the National War Correspondents Memorial Arch. It was erected in 1896 at Crampton's Gap on South Mountain, near Frederick, MD. It sits astride the Gap and is in the middle of the southern part of the South Mountain Battlefield, the predecessor battle to Antietam. The Appalachian Trail passes right by it as well.

    Just starting here and still ignorant of where the controls are - like how to edit posts and where TF do i enter the personal quote at the bottom?

    Should have said thought the quiz would be updated and got the post count since 2007 wrong. It probably has new quizzes but google kind of ruins things.
    Maybe starting here: http://www.worldaffairsboard.com/sho...61571&page=137

    That should be the end of this thread then - in 2007, ...yet theres some 900+ pages of responses since then. I expected to see something interesting.

    Actually it was a bluegrass festival at a brewery.

    Yes it’s Parker’s Revenge. It is the spot on the Boston Road where the Lexington Company of Militia got into the fight after recovering from the hammering they took earlier that morning.

    That must be James VI of Scotland, I of England, who succeeded Elizabeth I. No idea what town it is.
