Episode Description:

Civil War's Bloodiest Battle Near Antietam German Baptist Meeting House

Bloodiest Battle on American Soil, Kills or Wounds 23,000 On Doorsteps of German Baptist Meeting House

The Civil War Battle of Antietam, which was fought on just one day, September 17, 1862 is described by historians as the bloodiest battle on this country's soil. The German Baptist Brethren Meeting House of Antietam is one of the most noted landmarks, on that field of combat, where an estimated 23,000 soldiers were killed or wounded between 9:00AM and noon.

For a ''step back in time,'' Brethren Voices visits the National Park of the Antietam Battlefield in Sharpsburg, Maryland to get the rest of the story about the ''Dunker Church.'' At the 2018 Annual Conference of the Church of the Brethren, in Cincinnati, we also visited with Jeff Bach of the Young Center of Elizabethtown College.

He shares more about this congregation, as it dealt with the Civil War on its doorsteps. Jeff states that the Confederate army actually used the Dunker Church building as a field hospital for needed amputations, in an attempt to save soldiers' lives. The Union army used nearby barns of farmers, for its hospitals.

Jeff also shares stories about David Long, an Elder of the Dunker (German Baptist Brethren) Church as well as details of slavery, before and after the Civil War. He states the Emancipation Proclamation did not take affect in Maryland, as it was not one of the Confederate States. According to Bach, the slaves held in Maryland were freed by State of Maryland legislation, enacted, after the Civil War.

Brent Carlson, host of “Brethren Voices, places this battle in the perspective of perhaps our greatest challenge of today, “climate change.”
