The Naked Historian: Episode 9. Massaponax Baptist Church
This episode was filmed just up the road from The Naked Historian’s own homestead at the landmark Massaponax Baptist Church. This historic house of worship witnessed one of the most famously photographed events of the entire Civil War, Union commander U.S. Grant’s war council with Gen. George Meade. Today the original building still serves its congregation who share the exact same pews that Gen. Grant and his staff did. Next up: “Jackson Flank March Trail’ at Chancellorsville Battlefield (finally!).
