The Civil War

Churchill sits just off of Highway 11, which at the time of the Civil War was the main route from the North to the South through the Shenandoah Valley. Shermans Army was said to have marched up the front walkway of Churchill but left the home and all of its possessions untouched.

Rockbridge County is rich in history of the Civil War. Virginia Military Institute located in Lexington, VA just 5 miles north of Churchill.

Both Robert E Lee and Stonewall Jackson are buried in Lexington, near the campuses of Washington & Lee and VMI.
