Notes This classic edifice, built in 1842, was used as a hospital by Federal soldiers in 1864 and then damaged by them. Here just after the War, a Northern officer married a Southern girl. The wedding caused a furor. The organist, playing under protest, dressed in deep mourning and plated the wedding march in funeral time.
