Throughout history, America has seen political leaders and battles greatly influenced by religion. Today’s giveaway, Onward Southern Soldiers: Religion and the Army of Tennessee in the Civil War, provides an antebellum backdrop that will fascinate those interested in religious, political and war history.
During the war, religion sustained soldiers low on supplies and morale and left a significant impact on every rank, from generals to common soldiers. Using primary source material such as diaries, letters, journals and sermons of the Army of Tennessee, Traci Nichols-Belt and Gordon T. Belt (recent guest bloggers), present the vital role of the army’s religious practices.
