A long-planned long weekend visit to DC to check out Harper's Ferry and Antietam in a few days has been infuriatingly stymied by the shutdown. The plan had been to go see a lot of stuff related to John Brown's Raid, Civil War battlefields, and African American art housed at the National Gallery. The trip was in part to do research for a creative writing project about Mr Brown, and part for some general shenanigans. Now what?

- We are starting and ending our journey in DC where we have a place to stay
- We have a rental car
- Four adults no kids
- 75% of us dislike hiking and other outdoor sports
- 25% of us are pretty pregnant
- 100% of us would be interested in super authentic super delicious cheap eats
We are super confused about what is still open as a state site and what is closed as a federal site. Suggestions welcome for still-open Civil War sites and museums within 2 hours of DC. Thanks so much.
