Civil War Chapels
(Near) Petersburg, VA
Armory Square Hospital, Washington D.C.
York, PA Civil War Hospital Chapel
Christ Church, Alexandria Virginia
While not a chapel on a military post, according to the church’s brochure, “When the U.S. Army occupied Alexandria in 1861, it seized many churches for use as hospitals or stables. However, the reputation of Christ Church as George Washington’s place of worship preserved it as a church where U.S. Army chaplains conducted services. Parishioners who remained in the area worshiped elsewhere. In 1866, Christ Church, its interior intact, was restored to its parishioners.”
