As we lead up to our Centennial stories, we pick up the earlier story of the Brockenbrough-McCall House written by Dianne Saison. Despite the turmoil, the family remained in residence. In 1767, Katherine died during the birth of the couple’s second daughter, Catherine McCall. With two young children in a country fraught with political upheaval, McCall decided to send his daughters overseas to a school in Scotland. In 1770, a changed man, he added his signature to a non-importation decree.

In Chapel yesterday, we share “All Things Bright & Beautiful” first published in 1848. It consists of a series of stanzas that elaborate upon the clause of the Apostles' Creed that describes God as "maker of heaven and earth", and asserts a creationist view of the natural world. We remember that Archibald McCall set up a merchant business in town and married heiress Katherine Flood. The family business prospered. However, while McCall loved the land where he had made his home, his loyalties were divided between the crown and the colonies.
