Civil War nooks and crannies
I like to visit the out-of-the-way Civil War sites. Here's a small church in West Virginia along the route of Confederate general A.P. Hill's march to save Lee's Army at Antietam. The church, built in 1837, now serves about 15 hearty Pentacostal members. I spoke briefly with the preacher, who gave me a guided tour of the one-room building and proudly pointed out the new air-conditioner/heater. He said the building once served as a stable.
