Civil War

On September 17, 1862, the bloodiest battle during the 
Civil War ensued. By the end of the day, thousands 
of Americans had been killed, wounded, or captured. 

Ironically, the Mumma meetinghouse of the 
Manor congregation (Brethren property) was at the 
epicenter of the bloodiest event in American history. 
The day after the battle, local Brethren aided wounded
 soldiers and used the meetinghouse as a hospital.
