Gen. Mark Perrin Lowrey: The Fighting Baptist Parson
By H. Rondel Rumburg
Gen. Lowrey was a combatant in the Confederate Army of the Tennessee. His commanding officers commended his exceeding bravery. He had the highest calling as a minister of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, but during the war he buckled on the sword as did numbers of ministers. He was active in the revival that swept the Army of the Tennessee. Lowrey was a Baptist pastor, a self-educated man, and pioneer in women’s education. Sadly this great Southern gentleman is little known today.
