A stained glass window has become part of the Brunswick Heritage Museum in Brunswick, Maryland. The museum tells the store of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad and its effect on the town and also houses the Visitors Center for the National Park Service’s Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historic Park

    • You are correct, this building was around during the Civil War in the 1860’s. It is a national park and the town is Harper’s Ferry, where two rivers meet and where they made muskets for the northern army. After bypassing it, the southern troops went back to capture the town and secure a way to escape from intrusion into Gettysburg Penn. There was no food to feed the union soldiers that were captured so the southern troops had the northern troops lay down their arms, sign a paper that they would not fight anymore and let them go Many ended up fighting in Gettysburg and stopping the southern troops from advancing on Washington DC.
