Winner of the 1993 Douglas Southall Freeman History Award, sponsored by Military Order of the Stars and Bars, The Confederacy’s Fighting Chaplain is the remarkable story of the Irishman who brought the Bible and his own resourcefulness and daring to both the battlefield and the diplomatic field―a story that has been largely ignored for more than 130 years. The biography of John B. Bannon also chronicles the forgotten Southerners―the Irish immigrants of the Confederacy―whose colorful and crucial role in the Civil War has been seriously neglected.
