US Park Rangers at Antietam National Battlefield are investigating recent graffiti vandalism on the Robert E. Lee statue within the park. Graffiti and other forms of damage to parks are harmful and illegal. Repair of vandalized sites is costly and time consuming, and staff often cannot restore sites and resources to their former condition.
If you have information that could help identify those responsible, please contact any National Park Service (NPS) employee, or give the Special Agents of the NPS Investigative Services Branch a call. You don't have to tell us who you are, but please tell us what you know:
