A great stop for the Civil War enthusiast

Worth a stop if you are into Civil War history or beautiful historic churches. Check out the tree where Gen Lee tied up Traveler (his trusty horse) while he attended services.

This antebellum church has beautiful stained glass windows and is still used for worship. An ancient tree surrounded by a brick wall just north of the church is the same tree that General Lee tied up his faithful steed, Traveler when he worshipped there in 1863.

This is a lovely parish church with an important history, frequented by Robert E. Lee during at least one winter during the Civil War. Well worth a stop in the charming town of Orange.
