Philippi Covered Bridge

The Confederate soldiers had placed hay on the bridge and were about to set it afire when Joshua got down on his knees and prayed for hours to save the bridge. This was during the famous Jones-Imboden raids that were terrorizing this part of West Virginia. I suspect his brother, Confederate Captain Edward M. Corder, was with the troops at the bridge and may have helped Joshua plead his case.
