Like father, like son... All is not buildings and crosses on Greensboro Daily Photo's Sunday religious posts. Today, we offer this photo of two of the many troops who were reading scripture during the pre-battle church service. Last Sunday morning, just before the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, reenacters were making ready. Others were meeting down by the river to pray.
The weather was beautiful and it was a peaceful lakeside sitting at the Sunday morning church service in Country Park at the encampment. While not quite from the same time period, the spiritual, "Down to the River to Pray" kept coming to mind as we listened. If you want to step out of the 18th century and hear the Alison Krauss version, see this video. The music and photos of actual baptisms are well worth viewing:
