I really enjoyed this book. As a student of southern history, I was troubled that I had never been given an opportunity to study this aspect of the Civil War. The protestants played such an important part of the Union's war effort and populations encouragement. The war was lasting far longer than anyone thought and was costing so much in terms of lives and money that many were losing their will to fight. The protestant's understanding and support for the fighting of the war played such a vital role. This book does a wonderful job of revealing the actions taken by several pastors in letters and sermons.
