Exceptionally fascinating, well-researched. Adds a whole new dimension to Gettysburg.
I visited your website and see that your knowledge is vast in this under-reported area of history. Thanks for the work you are doing to bring greater understanding.
This paragraph from your About page sums up how a lot of us feel and have felt: I also look at the Civil War from the standpoint of a committed Christian. I struggle to understand how the South, which considered itself the part of the nation that was most Christian in outlook, could seek to perpetuate a system of human bondage that, to my mind, was violently at odds with everything Jesus stands for.
How did this happen? It’s a very sad chapter in our history and human history.
Thanks again for your work.
