My friends (Lew & Ginny Gage) informed me that they had received a letter from Rev. Delancy L. Catlett, Pastor of the Christ Reformed Church, 117 W. Main Street in Sharpsburg, looking for funding to restore and preserve the windows.
According to the information sent to them: "Many of the Connecticut Volunteers were cared for in the church. In 1890 during a major renovation of the church the central bay entrance was replaced with a beautiful stained glass art window. This window along with a hundred dollars was donated by the veterans and friends of the 16th Connecticut Regiment Volunteers, 2nd Brig. 3rd Div. 9th A.C. as a memorial to those brave comrades that gave the ultimate sacrifice...Another smaller stained glass window in the front vestibule of the church is dedicated to the Heroes of Company H, 11th Connecticut and donated by a Comrade T."

If we are thinking of the same church, the one with the steeple on the
right as you look at it, I have a cabinet card that I would date from
the 1870s-80s that gives a beautiful view of the windows. Let me know.
