Abstract "This unpublished, historical account of significant Catholics in the Civil War, written by legendary journalist, soldier and adventurer David Power Conyngham, provides a first-person perspective to an era and a War that emphasized the importance of religion in American life. The majority of the work is based on Conyngham's conversations and correspondence with chaplains and nurses, and most of this book has never been seen by an audience beyond the archives." --Provided by publisher.
