Thank you to everyone who attended my presentation this morning.  Over the next week, I'll post more content related to the presentation, but for now here's a link to a couple posts in which I've written in more detail about Trinity Lutheran Church and the Civil War.
Also, here's a <link> to the presentation handout which contains an outline and the following primary sources, which consists of:
