U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright gave the leaders of Israel and Syria separate tours of historic sites linked to the Civil War era. On Sunday, before the resumption of Israeli-Syrian negotiations, she hosted Barak on a visit to the Antietam battlefield in Maryland. A day earlier, she took Syrian Foreign Minister Farouk al-Sharaa to Harper’s Ferry, W.Va., where before the war John Brown led an unsuccessful slave revolt.
