Civil War Religion
Civil War Religion during the war was important to most soldiers on both sides. There didnt tend to be a whole lot of atheists during a battle marching toward a group of people trying to kill you.
Both armies had chaplains that would comfort the men either by just talking to them when they were feeling weak or more often than not in a field hospital after getting wounded.
Chaplains would also take some of their personal time and devote it to writing letters back home for soldiers that had either been killed or simply could not write their own letters for one reason or another.
Chaplains also saw their fair share of battle. They would often join their unit and march into combat with them.
These were some pretty upstanding men.

The brass band of the Civil War played a very important role for both armies. They played at recruitment rallies and their music often helped to encourage young men to enlist.
