150 Year Old Prayer Book Found
[With thanks to Joe Topinka and the PhilaCWDIgest, via Joe Bilby]The journey of a small, rare l
eather-bound Episcopal prayer book with the name "Mary Gibbs Barnwell" embossed on the co
ver began when it was published in 1799. Its most recent and perhaps final chapter was writte
n on Nov. 17, 2008 in Beaufort, S.C., when resident Tom Chidsey and his brother Stephen retu
rned it to the Barnwell family more than 150 years after the Civil War battle where Chidsey's gr
eat-grandfather found it while burying Confederate dead.Charles, the 18-year-old son of an unc
ompromising abolitionist, joined the 129th Regiment of the Pennsylvania Volunteers. He was a
ssigned burial duty after the battle of Antietam near Sharpsburg, Md., on Sept. 17, 1862, the s
ingle bloodiest day in the history of American wars, with 23,000 casualties. A letter Charles wro
te home from the battlefield on Sept. 26, 1862, said, "I visited the battlefield but it was too horri
ble to be described." He found the prayer book on a dead Confederate soldier who had no othe
r identification, he explained in a handwritten note he inserted into the book.Louis Vuitton Mon
