Battle Damage


As a follow up to our post of yesterday, Dennis Sacrey, the administrator of the Fredericksburg Baptist Church, sends along some images of remant battle damage in the roof and wall of the church.  I mentioned in a comment that Dennis is the outgoing president of the Virginia Baptist Historical Society; he also volunteers for the park and has been an immense supporter of telling the story of Fredericksburg in the war.  Many thanks Dennis.

  1. I remember seeing damage inside the attic of Kenmore during preservation work in the early 1990’s, when I worked there as a guide. A live shell was found during the work and was later made inert. It used to be on display in the museum there. Several shells crashed through the mansion roof much like the church.
