Item Description...
Purchase of this book includes free trial access to where you can read more than a million books for free. This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: CHAPTER III. INFLUENCE OF CHRISTIAN OFFICERSContinued, THE piety of Stonewall Jackson has become as historic as his wonderful military career. But, as it was my privilege to see a good deal of him, and to learn from those intimate with him much of his inner life; and as his Christian character is well worthy of earnest study, and of admiring imitation, I give a somewhat extended sketch of it. I first came into personal contact with him on the 4th of July, 1861, while our army was drawn up in line of battle at Darkes- ville, to meet General Patterson. The skill and tact with which he had reduced the high-spirited young men who rushed to Harper's Ferry at the first tap of the drum into the respectable "Army of the Shenandoah," which he turned over to General Johnston on the 23d of May, 1861, and the ability and stern courage with which he had checked Patterson's advance at Falling Waters, had won for him some reputation, and I was anxious to see him. A colporter (good brother C. F. Fry) had sent me word that he desired permission to enter our lines to distribute Bibles and tracts. With the freedom with which in our army the humblest private could approach the highest officer I at once went to General Jackson for the permit . I have a vivid recollection of how he impressed me. Dressed in a simple Virginia uniform, apparently about thirty-seven years old, six feet high, medium size, grey eyes that seemed to look through you, light brown hair and a countenance in which deep benevolence seemed mingled with uncompromising sternness, he seemed to me to have about him nothing at all of the " pomp and circumstance of war," but every element which enters into the skilful leader, and the indomitable, energetic soldier who was always ready for the fight . Stating to him my mission...

What a read!  Jun 24, 2008
Takes you back to a time when God was clearly placed first in the lives of most Americans. Refreshing, insighful and inspiring throughout.

Highly recommended!
A Great Read on Revival in the Army of Northern Virginia  Mar 27, 2008
Ironically, I bought this book at the Fredericksburg VA battlefield visitor's center - the area of the one of the Army of Northern Virginia's greatest revivals. I bought this book back in the 1990's and just recently started to read and finish this book.

The book is written by one of the former chaplains in the Army of Northern Virginia and is a record of the revivals the army experienced during the Civil War. Mentioned throughout the book are several examples of entries by various chaplains and preachers of soldiers (officers and enlisted) coming forward to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.

Other areas covered by the book include:

1. Example of Christian officers in the Army of Northern Virginia - Lee, Jackson, Gordon, Ewell, etc.
2. Profiles of several chaplains who served in the army.
3. Places of revival - Fredericksburg, Winchester, etc.
4. Revivals that took place in various brigades - Lane, Daniel, Cobb, Hoke, Law, Barksdale, Dole, Armistead, and several others.

A great book to read if you are interested in the religious life of the Army of Northern Virginia during the Civil War.

Highly recommended!
Christ in the Camp book  Aug 18, 2005
Great book. I have been looking for a book like this for some time but didn't know it existed. Very informative.
Christ in the Camp  Jul 9, 2005
This is a great work and should be read. While the Northern Army was not having the Great Revivals the Southern Army was.

Light in the darkness  Sep 9, 2004
This book came to be recommended by a pastor whose great-grandfather had been in the Union Army during the Civil War. I found the work very interesting, on several scores. was fascinating to read the way in which people wrote in the days of the war. It may be unfair but seemingly safe to assume that most people in those days were illiterate and unable to write/read.. yet the accounts presented in this book spell out a different picture..of a time when men had skills to paint meaningful word pictures..a skill that is quickly fading away in our day. It was also interesting to note that the men in gray were praying to the same God as were the men in the blue. This irony was also evident in Michael Shaara's award winning book, The Killer Angels of 1974..a work about Gettysburg. If nothing else, this work of Dr. Jones presents yet another piece of important information in regard to the battle between the states and deserves to be reviewed by any serious student of American history. The work is not about the war so much as it is about the men behind the cannons, behind the rifles, seeking God in difficult moments, and of pastors and others who were there in those dark days, shedding light into a dismal situation. Though the book is written from the Southern perspective, we may wish to assume much of the same kind of evangelistic efforts were being conducted north of the Mason-Dixon Line. This is an old book but simply because it is old doesn't mean it isn't valuable. There are treasures here to be appreciated.
