Both Prayed to the Same God: Religion and Faith in the American Civil War

by Miller Robert

From the publisher:
Both Prayed to the Same God offers a popular yet scholarly overview of the most-ignored aspect of the American Civil War--the absolutely crucial role that religion played before, during, and after this deadliest of American wars.

This fascinating book outlines how religion and faith paved the way to division, were the greatest forces maintaining wartime morale, and helped shape forever how America's Civil War would be remembered.
