The church was burned to the ground during the Civil War by Union troops under General William Tecumseh Sherman’s command. Their seven-page petition, in the legislative holdings at the National Archives, is a heartfelt narrative of the church’s history and includes 234 signatures of free blacks and former slaves who were members of the congregation. The claim was presented to Congress on February 14, 1866, but the name of the church that appears in the petition is found nowhere else in the federal claims records. National Archives Senior Archivist Reginald Washington used the National Archives holdings to discover that the church never received compensation and that it still exists today as Big Bethel Church.
Inside the Vaults includes highlights from the National Archives in the Washington, DC, area and from the Presidential libraries and regional archives nationwide. These shorts present behind-the-scenes exclusives and offer surprising stories about the National Archives treasures. See more from Inside the Vaults at

The video settings get set after 1 minute during the filming..Rare opportunity to see what its like to be on stage during a live performance, here is your chance to see how much fun it is for me. I do this for Victory World Church on Sundays and I love it. I did not want to edit anything because I wanted you to see totally all raw footage.
