Publisher's Description

Few Wars in American history brought so many men to their knees. During the War Between the States (1861–1865), young men from the north and south came face to face with their own mortality. Disease, starvation, enemy fire, and inclement conditions motivated the soldiers to look heavenward.

Christian generals and officers of the Civil War led the way to revival in the camps of both Union and Confederate armies. Through their godly influence, preaching, praying, and Bible reading were encouraged. Experience taught these leaders the battles ahead would result in casualties. They could not allow their men to face death and eternity unprepared.

Stories of Faith and Courage from Civil War Officers, explores the lives and experiences of Christian generals and other high ranking officers from both the Union and Confederate ranks through daily devotionals. These devotional readings come alive through the perspectives of some of the war’s key players: Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, President Abraham Lincoln, and William Rosecrans, to name a few.

Excerpts from original manuscripts, letters, and speeches give this devotional authenticity and accuracy. Unlike many books with historical subjects, this devotional incorporates faith as an important element in the decisions and emotions experienced by those who led the charge in a bitter war that divided not only the States but families and friends within those states.

Many have questioned why a loving God allowed America to experience such bloodshed among its own sons? According to author, "We will never know all the answers until we reach heaven. We can take comfort though in the fact that we serve a just and righteous God who does all things well. (Romans 8:28).

The words of the godly generals and officers presented in this book will encourage readers today, just as they encouraged the hearts of enlisted men over one hundred and fifty years ago
