Big Bethel Methodist Episcopal Church of Atlanta Petition to Congress

This Inside the Vaults video short tells the story of the African-American congregation of the Colored Methodist Episcopal Church of Atlanta, who petitioned the U.S. Congress for compensation after the Civil War. 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

Tom and Nilo’s Wedding July 4, 2014, Christ Episcopal Church, Sausalito, CA

On July 4, 2014, Thomas John Bauer and Nilo Discartin Ventura were married at Christ Episcopal Church in Sausalito, California by Father Chip Larrimore after 19 years together.

At long last, here is what we were able to salvage from our wedding video. As some of you may know, we attempted to Live Stream the wedding so our friends and family around the world could watch it live as it was happening. Unfortunately, the broadcast failed six minutes into the ceremony and as a result, the video does not contain the entrance of our wedding party and us nor does it have the wonderfully delivered readings done by Nick Galante and Jean McGrath-Bauer.

The video picks up from the gospel reading. Please make sure you listen to the remarkable sermon by our friend, Father Chip Barker Larrimore who got almost as much attention for it as we did for getting married. It was pretty incredible as was our nephew Christopher Stebner who performed a remarkable violin solo of the Ave Maria. The end of the video shows the butterfly release we did in honor our deceased parents, my Mom,Mary Ann and Nilo’s parents Magdalena and Faustino.

Thank you to Kevin Chak for filming the wedding and to Alex King for editing the film. Without the two of you, we would not have this remembrance of our very special day.

We hope that you find the video as beautiful, special and moving as we do. This was the most special day we have spent together in 19 years and we are very happy to share it with all of our friends.
