The church was founded in 1835-36 to provide christian service to Gettysburg residents who wanted their worship services to be in English. Other area churches & congregations were holding the majority of their services in German, so a church of this nature was needed.
Christ Lutheran Church is not far from Lincoln Square and during our visit we walked over to the church to take a look. It's a beautiful church and quite large in size. Out front they have historical markers and plaques that you can read which gives you some of the church's history and the important part that it played during the Battle of Gettysburg.
If you're in the area and would like to attend one of the Songs and Stories of a Civil War Hospital performances, you can check out this PAGE for information on that. If you're not in the area, you can purchase a book and/or CD with the information and performance in them. It's really fascinating to visit this place and to see & hear the performance, so we highly recommend it and wanted to mention it here on our travel blog.
