Bells Across The Land – Thursday, April 9th at 2:15 p.m.

church bell 001-1This coming Thursday April 9 will mark the 150th anniversary of  the end of the Civil War.  Bells will ring at 2:15 PM for four minutes. The time marks the meeting between Generals Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee at the Appomattox Court House in Virginia, and the duration represents one minute for each year of the war.

150 years ago our historic  bell at First Presbyterian Church would have been in the steeple of the newly built brick church located kitty-corner from our present location, and would likely have been rung out to celebrate the end of the Civil War.church bell 004

Our bell will be rung this Thursday at 2:15.  Anyone wishing to participate may come to the church at 2:00 that day and help pull the rope in the balcony.
