The Bayer family story is full of faith, family, and friends. George and Anna were young, with the hopes and expectant dreams common to young families. They longed for peace and prosperity, for a safe place to raise their children. Their hopes were abruptly interrupted by the realities of the Civil War. About 750,000 soldiers passed through the narrow strip of western Maryland where you could eat breakfast in Virginia and lunch in Pennsylvania. Afterwards, the world as they knew it would never be the same. Their story was repeated thousands of times throughout the land with myriad variations.
Over 2,000 battles would pit not only the North against the South, but brother against brother, father against son, neighbor against neighbor. Approximately 620,000 men would never return home. One million more would bear lifelong wounds from the battles they fought. The economy was decimated wherever the soldiers had been with crops ravaged, animals slaughtered, and plantations, farms, and homes burned.
