Union soldier's bones found at Md. Civil War site

The remains of a Civil War soldier have surfaced at the Antietam National Battlefield in western Maryland after 146 years underground.

Battlefield Park Superintendent John Howard says a visitor happened upon some bone fragments and a uniform button near a groundhog hole in October.

The bones have been sent to the Smithsonian Institution for further analysis, but Howard says individual identification is unlikely.
