Experience Of A Confederate Chaplain, 1861-1864 (1865) based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I have just finished reading this short volumne in a single sitting and found it to be very worthwhile. The book, written in diary format, gives a very good insight into the War for Southern Independence from a Confederate chaplain's unique point of view. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the book, I rate it only four stars because of its brevity. Being written as a day-to-day journal, many of the entries are a bit sketchy. Still, several passages are very revealing and even emotionally moving. Readers desiring to know the truth about America's War of 1861-1865 (This book says it was not a true "Civil War") would do well to study the words of those who were actually a part of that unfortunate conflict, and not just the politically correct spin put on it by writers who were born a century or more later.
