Heavily damaged during the battle of Antietam, the Dunker Church served as a hospital after the battle and later suffered collapse before being rebuilt. Discover how the history of this church is interwoven with that of Stonewall Jackson, Clara Barton, Abraham Lincoln, and even Mark Twain. With author Terry Barkley.

He retired in 2012 as director of the Brethren Historical Library and Archives (BHLA) at the Church of the Brethren General Offices in Elgin, Illinois. That same year he delivered the 150th anniversary commemorative lecture on the Dunker Church of Antietam Battlefield at the Annual Conference of the Church of the Brethren in St. Louis. Terry has also lectured in the Dunker Church at Antietam National Battlefield. He is an independent scholar and musician and lives in Lexington, Virginia. This is his fourth book.
