|Located just off Rt 623 in Charles City County, about 4 miles north of Hwy 5, and just across the creek. |
The historical marker along Hwy 5 reads:
SALEM CHURCH. This church, four miles north, was used as a field hospital, June 1864, following the action at Nance's Shop, where the Union cavalryman Gregg, guarding a wagon train, was attacked by Wade Hampton. Gregg was driven from the field but saved the wagons. Wounded soldiers were brought to the church and some of the dead were buried there.
