The German Baptists, known by many as "Dunkers,:" because of their practice of full-immersion baptisms, worshipped in this small white sanctuary near Sharpsburg, Maryland. The climactic and bloody Battle of Antietam swirled around this old building that day in September of 1862. Confederate fiorces amassed all around the old church, including Stonewall Jackson's infantry and a strong artillery line asembled on a nearby ridge by General S.D. Lee..
