Children at work

From the Frederick paper (registration may be required), some Won Cause mythology:
Salman Kazmi, 13, cleaned gravestones in an area [in Antietam Battlefield] where soldiers from Pennsylvania are buried. "They sacrificed their lives saving the slaves' rights," he said, "and I thought that was pretty noble of them."
From the Hagerstown paper, some Reconciliation mythology:
"To imagine 23,000 people fighting for our country and dying all at the same time, that's really moving," Lingg said.
In case you were wondering what kids are learning these days. Taken from reports of the same headstone cleaning event. (Emphasis added.)
