Chattanooga’s Churches Under Siege, 1862-1863, will be held Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m. at Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church, 7th and Pine Streets.
The event will be presented by Jim Ogden, head ranger and historian of the Chickamauga Chattanooga National Military Park.
The evening will be a look at the city and its religious communities, particularly St. Paul’s, First Presbyterian, First Methodist Church, Centenary Methodist Church, Saints Peter and Paul Church, and First Baptist Church during one of the most tumultuous years of the Civil War.
The free event is open to the public and a Civil War 150th commemoration event.
Also on that afternoon the international art exhibit, Icons in Transformation, will be available for viewing until 8 p.m. The exhibit explores the interaction of traditional Russian icons with paintings and sculptures by Russian abstract artist expressionist Ludmila Pawlowska and is offered to the community with no admission fee. The exhibit will be available until Nov. 9.
