In his book, “Christ in the Camp” Rev. John William Jones states, “Any history of that army which omits an account of the wonderful influence of religion upon it – which fails to tell how the courage, discipline and morale of the whole as influenced by the humble piety and evangelical zeal of many of its officers and men – would be incomplete and unsatisfactory. . . Scarcely a company moved without some public religious service, and it was considered a most important part of each man’s equipment that he should carry in his knapsack a copy of God’s word.” “In 1865 I was solicited by many of my fellow chaplains and by General Lee himself, to prepare this chapter of our history.”
