The Confederate Soldier’s Pocket Manual of Devotions was compiled by Quintard as Chaplain of the 1st Tennessee Regiment, and it was originally published in 1863. Quintard was a physician before becoming a minister. He was active in both callings during the Second War for Independence. There is a picture of Quintard on the cover and a biographical sketch by Dr. H. Rondel Rumburg on the back.
The publication was created for our Confederate troops in time of spiritual need. It includes prayers, songs, short essay’s, and poetry. Truly, this is a wonderful piece of history which has been brought back to life.
