"Religion, once an element that united American?s of all regions, became yet another ideological factor that divided the North and the South during the Civil War. Gardiner H. Shattuck offers the first comprehensive survey of the place of religion in the Civil War armies, focusing on the differences in the relationship between religion and culture in the North and the South. In doing so, Shattuck provides important evidence about the religious, social, and cultural composition of the United States in both the North and the South during the nineteenth century"--Jacket.
