The sixteen essays in this volume, all previously unpublished, address the little considered question of the role played by religion in the American Civil War. The authors show that religion, understood in its broadest context as a culture and community of faith, was found wherever the war was found. Comprising essays by such scholars as Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, Drew Galpin Faust, Mark Noll, Reid Mitchell, Harry Stout, and Bertram Wyatt-Brown, and featuring an afterword by James McPherson, this collection marks the first step towards uncovering this crucial yet neglected aspect of American history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The volume is a treasure for those interested in the Civil War, American religion, and the relation of one to the other * The Journal of American History *
This book goes a long way in rectifying the long-neglected aspect of the importance of religion in America's Civil War. The essays are by excellent scholars who write well. Each essay is well documented for those wishing to delve further into a particular field of study * The Journal of American History *
Those looking for a thorough and thought-provoking introduction to the subject as a whole should start with Phillip Paludan's excellent "Overview" essay * American Studies Today *
