Do I recall reading somewhere that the original church building was destroyed by a tornado in the 1930s ?

Hi Larry, & Greg,

Well they certainly did a good job with the rebuilded Dunker Church, when I saw it, back in 2006, you couldn't tell it from the original! Perhaps you could post a pick of it today to compare!? I always remember the post battle photo of a line of dead soldiers, In front of it, sad!

Thanks,
MD

BTW Compared to you Larry, I never get to see Gettysburg, & Antietam, weren't you just there, the other day! Must be nice to live so realitively close!?
