  • Hi Tom, I wrote an article on the farm for Civil War Times four years ago, and from what I was able to put together Roulette removed his family to the Dunker church (not THE Dunker church, but another one farther north) just prior to the battle. He then returned to “safeguard” his property. After the battle, he gathered his family and brought them back. In the absence of some...

  • Larry, I believe I’ve taken photos FROM the farm toward SM, but don’t think I have any OF the farm. IIRC, there is a newer, 1.5 story dwelling there.

  • Steve, No, I don’t think I got that from Kathy’s book. I’ll look for that. But first: I have two sources that say the family evacuated to Manor Church –the first being 14th CT Chaplain Stevens, who said the family had left but the father had returned. The second is in “A History of Washington County, Maryland, From the Earliest Settlement to the Present Time” by Thomas...

  • I too may have mis-counted the Roulette children – can’t recall whether or not I factored in Carrie May’s later birthdate. FWIW, here’s the text of the story as I submitted it – there were slight edits made for the published version, but nothing major, IIRC. “ When he realized that the men streaming past his home were Union soldiers and not the Confederates who had been...

  • Keven Walker, the cultural resources ranger who gave me a tour of the house while I was researching the article, is the author of the farmsteads book.

  • Tom, According to my research I did, the family moved north to the Manor Dunker Church (about 6 miles away) prior to the battle. Mr. Roulette returned to the farm and was indeed present during the battle, leaving after the 2nd Corps moved south past his house. I wrote an article about this in America’s Civil War a couple years ago. I found no sources indicating the rest of the...
