This is the battlefield of Antietam. My husband was always interested in the Civil War and recently found out his great-great grandfather fought in the battle of Antietam.
We went there this weekend and met distant family members, third cousins, not one of which would be here today if great, great-grandfather Allen McLane died in this battle.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The Pena National Palace.
The Pena National Palace (Palácio Nacional da Pena) is a Romanticist palace in São Pedro de Penaferrim, municipality of Sintra, Portugal. The palace stands on the top of a hill above the town of Sintra, and on a clear day it can be easily seen from Lisbon and much of its metropolitan area. It is a national monument and constitutes one of the major expressions of 19th century Romanticism in the world. The palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. It is also used for state occasions by the President of the Portuguese Republic and other government officials."
