Here the Boy Surgeon...

This window was given to the Christ Episcopal Church by Dr. William Andrew Collins. The portrait of Collins, above, was taken about 1865 and published in a Grand Army of the Republic encampment booklet in 1905. (Window photo courtesy of Ann Grahn.

Here is the story... and snippet... a good story...

https://madisoncourier.com/Content/Home/Home/Article/Stained-glass-window-was-a-gift-to-church-from-The-Boy-Surgeon-/-2/-2/28457

By the time William Andrew Collins was 19, he had graduated from Hanover College, started medical studies and enlisted as a hospital steward in the Indiana 6th Infantry Regiment. Within a few months of enlisting, he was a field doctor at the Battle of Shiloh.
“The Boy Surgeon” was the title of a history of Collins’ illustrious military career written in 1882 for The Madison Courier by a lieutenant who had served with him.

Here is one ... Vicksburg...

http://tarrastravels.blogspot.com/2011/04/vicksburg-mississippi.html

We cruised around the historic downtown area and stopped to take a little tour thru the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. It was started in 1870 and has 34 stained glass windows, six of which were designed by Tiffany of New York. There are only five other Tiffany windows in the state. The first windows installed were given in memory of Confederate and Union dead at the battle of Vicksburg. It is believed to be one of the first such gestures of reconciliation in the South. Then we headed down to the waterfront where they have 32 murals about the history of the town painted on the levee wall. All but one were painted by the same artist since 2001.

Here one honoring a civil war vet...

The story behind the window and a link to more...
http://www.stmarkspennsburg.com/site/cpage.asp?sec_id=180014277&cpage_id=180060359

A window on the north side of the sanctuary depicting hope, faith and charity, reads as follows: “In Memory of Lieut. Thomas J. Lynch.”

Lt. Thomas J. Lynch was born in Germantown on May 17, 1827, as the son of Robert L. and Mary Lynch. The elder Lynch, an immigrant of Londonderry, Ireland, moved his family from Germantown to Upper Hanover Twp., sometime during the 1840’s. His farm consisted of several hundred acres. Our present church stands on what was part of his original farm.

Thomas Lynch was the eldest of 10 children. He was a teacher by profession, but his foremost interests were in the military.

At age 16, Thomas joined a company of militia in Germantown and marched with them to Philadelphia to help suppress the riot of 1844. In 1860, he was instrumental in organizing a company of volunteers in Pennsburg in which he served as 2nd Lt. With the outbreak of the Civil War, he was mustered into the 51st Regiment as a 2nd Lt, on October 17, 1861. In the spring of 1862, Lt. Lynch contacted small pox which left him severely pocked.

He took part in several significant battles of the Civil War, one of which was the Battle of Antietam. On September 17, 1862, during a raging battle while storming a famous bridge, he was wounded and incapacitated for a long time. Shortly thereafter, he was commissioned as a 1st Lieutenant. Upon his recovery, he rejoined his regiment at Vicksburg. Four days after rejoining the front, he became ill with “camp fever” for nine weeks. (Camp Fever is believed to also be dysentery.) Never fully recovered from Camp Fever, Thomas died on May 14, 1864, at the age of 36, from wounds suffered in a recent battle. He was buried in a forest near Spotsylvania Courthouse, Virginia, by his brother, Hugh Lynch, who was serving in the same regiment.

Eight days after his own death, Thomas’ father, Robert, died of Typhoid Fever. Robert was living in Norriton and was buried in Germantown.

On October 15, 1865, the remains of Lt. Thomas Lynch were re-interred at the Pennsburg Reformed Church Cemetery. His widow, Maria (Lang) Lynch, was a charter member of St. Marks. Thomas and Maria’s son, Robert J., who was 3 when Thomas died, grew to become a son of the ministry of St. Mark’s as he was ordained in 1888.

Tennessee Boy Hero... Sam Davis ... Was he hung unjustly?

Who Was Sam Davis?
What Made Him A Boy Hero?

Born on October 6, 1842 in Rutherford County, Tennessee, Samuel Davis grew up in an upper-middle class family. The oldest son of Charles Lewis Davis and Jane Simmons Davis, he attended the local Smyrna schools until leaving home in 1860 to attend Western Military Academy in Nashville.

Sam remained in school only a short time before the Civil War began in 1861. Like many other young men, Sam joined the army before Tennessee had officially seceded from the Union. He enlisted in Co. I of the 1st Tennessee Infantry Regiment in April 1861. In 1862, they moved west and took part in the battles of Shiloh, Perryville, and Stones River.

Early in 1863, Sam became a member of "Coleman's Scouts." By 1863, the Union Army occupied much of Middle Tennessee. Sam and his fellow scouts worked behind enemy lines disrupting communications and collecting information on the troop movements of the Union forces for the Confederate Army. Even though they wore Confederate uniforms and traveled with passes signed by Confederate General Braxton Bragg, the Union army considered them spies if captured.

Around November 20, 1863 as Sam traveled toward Chattanooga, he was captured by Federal troops near Minor Hill, Tennessee. Sam carried papers that contained critical information on troop movements near Nashville and Pulaski, as well as eleven newspapers and various personal items for General Bragg. Among the papers found concealed on Sam was information that could have only come from the desk of Union General Grenville Dodge. Convinced that one of his own officers was supplying information to the Confederates, Dodge decided to put pressure on Sam to identify his spy. He offered Sam his freedom in exchange for this information. Sam refused, so General Dodge ordered a court martial.

The court charged Sam with being a courier of mails and of being a spy. Sam admitted to being a courier, but pleaded "Not Guilty" to the charge of spying. The military court convicted Sam Davis on both charges and sentenced him to hang. When preparing him for the gallows, General Dodge offered Sam one last chance to save his life by revealing the source of the papers he carried. Sam stated with his last words: "I would rather die a thousand deaths than betray a friend." He was hanged on November 27, 1863.

Visitors to the historic Sam Davis Home in Smyrna will see the home much as it was when Sam lived there. The home, built around 1810 by Moses Ridley and renovated in 1850 by the Davis family, contains over one hundred original family pieces. The floors, doors, and most of the woodwork are also original to the 1850 house. The home is located on a 168-acre farm where crops are still grown.

It is not the civil war but it is the American Flag in stain glass...

It had to be somewhere--the world's largest stained-glass flag--so it's here on the south wall of the Dole Institute of Politics on the west campus of the University of Kansas in Lawrence.

It's 40 feet high, it has 960 pieces and, it weighs one ton (not that it's likely to be moved anytime soon) and it costs $200,000. Flanking the flag are steel columns recovered from the World Trade Center.

Plain and simple, but there nonetheless is a stained glass window and plaque dedicated to General Pat Cleburne at Cliburn Church, Cumbria, UK.

The Coat of Arms is an updated version of the Claiborne/Claybourne Coat of Arms - interestingly, they have the wolf bearing a Hardee pattern Color.

The inscription below the Coat of Arms 'CLIBBOR NE SCEAME' is not Latin, but according to the link above is a corruption of the original Saxon motto 'Neither Praise nor Shame adheres'.

Another Dome...

Magnificent stained glass ceiling dome with militaristic motifs and insignia from the Grand Army of the Republic. From a historic property in Brooklyn, once home to the Ulysses S. Grant chapter of the G. A. R, a group for veterans of the Civil War.

Stained Glass Soldier and Sailor windows...

Created in 1865, the Indiana Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Children’s Home cared for children orphaned or made destitute by the Civil War and every subsequent war or conflict. The home reached its highest enrollment of more than 1,000 children in the depths of the Great Depression. Today, the 53-acre campus includes 50 architecturally high-style buildings—administrative structures, school, hospital, chapel, residential cottages and staff houses, power plant, industrial arts and service buildings—that date from 1887 to 1980.
