Historic Churches of Fredericksburg: Houses of the Holy
By Michael Aubrecht

Charleston, SC:  Historic Churches of Fredericksburg: Houses of the Holy recalls stories of rebellion, racism, and reconstruction as experienced by Secessionists, Unionists, and the African American population in Fredericksburg’s landmark churches during the Civil War and Reconstruction eras. Using a wide variety of materials compiled from the local National Park archives, author Michael Aubrecht presents multiple perspectives from local believers and nonbelievers who witnessed the country’s “Great Divide.” Learn about the importance of faith in old Fredericksburg through the recollections of local clergy such as Reverend Tucker Lacy; excerpts from slave narratives as recorded by Joseph F. Walker; impressions of military commanders such as Robert E. Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson; and stories of the conflict over African American churches.
