Carson Hudson on Impact of Civil War on Williamsburg
 
How did Bruton Parish Church remain intact and unscathed by the Battle of Williamsburg?  
 
Did members of the church continue to worship in our historic building during the Civil War?  
 
Were people killed during the Battle of Williamsburg, and were they buried in the church yard?
 
Carson Hudson will answer these and other questions during the Guides’ Ministry presentation on Wednesday, September 13, in the Parish House. Please plan to join us for coffee and dessert at 6:30pm and the program beginning at 7pm in Lewis Hall. The event is sponsored by the Bruton Parish Guides’ Ministry.
      Hudson will share his passion for nineteenth-century American military and social history with us during his presentation which will feature his most recent publication, Yankees in the Streets: Forgotten People and Stories of Civil War Williamsburg. He is a Colonial Williamsburg program manager and a part-time educator at the Mariner’s Museum and USS Monitor Center in Newport News. Hudson serves as the Williamsburg Battlefield Association’s historian.  
    “Carson is a skilled and talented historian. He truly is one of our local treasures,” according to Anne Conkling, member of the Guides’ Ministry Education Committee and longtime trainer of church guides. She adds, “Do plan to join us on September 13th to learn more about Bruton Parish during the Civil War. Carson Hudson will transport us back in time to 1862 in Williamsburg.”
