Historical Information

The soldiers entered a clearing and passed a country church – Opequon Presbyterian – just as midweek services ended and the congregation was leaving. The church members paused at the doorstep, watching with respect and affection as their countrymen and protectors passed in the night. The warm, inviting lights of the church shined through the darkness and kindled emotions among the young warriors. Less than a year before, they too had enjoyed such peaceful assemblies among family and friends. Visions of home now arose before them: memories of a favorite hymn, a cherished face, a treasured moment of peace.
