SHARPSBURG, Md. (AP) - Remember the Civil War sesquicentennial?

You can relive those re-enactments Monday when a state-sponsored tourism group presents an audiovisual retrospective of 150th anniversary events from the last five years.

It’s part of the annual meeting of the Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area at Antietam National Battlefield near Sharpsburg.

The program includes slides and video compiled by the National Park Service from nearly 30 sesquicentennial events.

The event comes as the nonprofit Civil War Trust prepares to mark the last event on its sesquicentennial calendar: The proclamation on Dec. 18, 1865, that made the 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery, part of the U.S. Constitution.
