Indy: Thanks also. If you ever remember the name of the church, drop it here. Your comment got me to thinking about Dunker Church in Antietam. I was only in there once, and I can't remember if there was any blood on the floors or not. Anyone else know?

I'm sure there's others out there, so keep 'em coming!

 

St. Mark's Episcopal Church

I've never heard of blood stains in Dunker Church. That church was demolished by a storm sometime in the 20's. Although rebuilt with much of the same materials, I'm not sure about the flooring.

Garry Adelman has a "then and now" book about Antietam. In it are pictures from different times that shows the area of the church. Believe it or not, but for awhile after the church was demolished, a convenience store was built over the foundation. There were also houses located right behind that spot. Even after the church was rebuilt, some of the houses were still there. Thankfully today the area looks much as it did in 1862.
