More books have been written about the Civil War than any other event in American history. Of these some 60,000+ volumes, there is no shortage of diaries, biographies and studies of both legendary figures and virtual unknowns who played their unique roles in America’s most deadly war. While Lincoln books perhaps dominate the field, there is a plethora of titles on generals, unit commanders, artillerymen, infantrymen – and of late, more about key 19th century figures from wider societal perspectives. But of all the books published, perhaps some of the most ignored people, both during the Civil War and in postwar chronicling, have been the unit and regimental chaplains.
