J. William Jones, Christ in the camp, or religion in Lee's army, Chapter 3: influence of Christian officers—continued. (search)
But why should I not rather rejoice in it as a blessing, and not look on it as a calamity at all? If it were in my power to replace my arm, I would not dare do it unless I could know that it was the will of my Heavenly Father. His dispatches and official reports all breathed this spirit of trust in and dependence upon God. His simple God blessed our arms with victory at McDowell yesterday, was but a type of the character and spirit of his dispatches. After his capture of Winchester in 1862 he issued the following order: General order no. 53. Headquarters, Valley District. Winchester, May 26, 1862. Within four weeks this army has made long and rapid marches, fought six combats and two battles, signally defeating the enemy in each one, captured several stands of colors and pieces of artillery, with numerous prisoners and vast medical, ordnance and army stores, and finally driven the boastful host, which was ravaging our beautiful country, into utter rout. The general co

he battles around Richmond and the marches to the Rappahannock and to Maryland, in all of which it honorably participated. At the reorganization of the army, in 1862, Captain Coleman was appointed major of artillery and soon after was elected Lieutenant-Colonel of the First Regiment of Virginia Artillery. Colonel Coleman was my mind with Lewis Minor Coleman and that beautiful but anxious Sabbath morning. He was prevented by severe illness from accompanying the army into Maryland in 1862. Even then his active spirit chafed under the necessary restraint. He requested a brother-officer to send for him if there was any prospect of a battle. In the uction, near Richmond, where I was in daily intercourse with him. In addition to my pastoral duties in the city, I served as chaplain in that camp during the years 1862 and 1863.

ry evangelists in the army, and that the board defray their expenses. Resolved: That this board be instructed, in connection with other boards which may deem such a measure important for their interests, to inquire into the expediency of deputing some suitable brother to visit Europe, for the purpose of procuring Bibles, books, tracts and any other appliances that may aid the general usefulness of such boards; and, if deemed expedient, be authorized to make arrangements therefor. During 1862 and 1863 alone this Sunday-school and Publication Board collected for army colportage $84,000. It published and distributed in the army 30,187,000 pages of tracts, 31,000 Bibles and Testaments, 14,000 Camp Hymns, and thousands upon thousands of religious books sent by the people from their homes, and religious papers without number. During 1864 sixty colporters were kept at work in the army. These were kept supplied with tracts, Bibles and Testaments, but for this year the exact records h

brigade returned to its quarters, and I went back to resume my meetings, and look up my candidates for baptism. I found, alas! that out of the nine received three had been killed, two were wounded and one was a prisoner, so that there were only three left for me to baptize. The alacrity with which the men went to work to build chapels may be cited as an illustration of their eagerness to hear the Gospel. When we went into winter-quarters along the Manassas lines in the winter of 1861-62, a few of the commands had well constructed chapels. I think the first one was built in the Seventeenth Virginia Regiment, of which my old university friend, Rev. John L. Johnson (now the distinguished Professor of English in the University of Mississippi), was chaplain. There was one also in the Tenth Virginia Infantry, of which Rev. S. S. Lambeth, of the Virginia Methodist Conference, was chaplain. In the Thirteenth Virginia Infantry we had a chapel and parsonage under the same roof, and

The following, dated Richmond, August 1O, 1862, is from the pen of Personal, army correspondent of the Charleston Courier: Probably at no soul rejoice; fifteen have been converted in my company in a short time. During the spring of 1862 two faithful chaplains, Rev. J. W. Timberlake, of the Second Florida, and Rev. W. H. C.

and though laid aside for a time by sickness (brought on by over-work), had the privilege of baptizing 238 soldiers, seeing 500 others profess conversion in connection with his labors, preaching about 500 sermons, besides many exhortations, lectures, etc., and distributing thousands of pages of tracts, and many Bibles and Testaments, and performing much other labor which may not be written here, but whose record is on high. Carefully compiled statistics show that, in the fall and winter of 1862-63, and spring of 1863, there were, at the very lowest estimate, at least 1,500 professions of conversion in Lee's army. I must omit a vast amount of material which I had collected concerning this period, and insert only the following: Headquarters, Forty-Fourth Virginia Regiment, April 15. Revivals of religion are contagious. There are times in the history of the Church when God seems to be more willing to give His Holy Spirit to them that ask Him than at others; therefore sinners

estimate of the number of men in the Army of Northern Virginia who professed faith in Christ during the four years of its existence. During the fall and winter of 1862-63, and spring of 1863, there were at least 1,500 professions. From August, 1863, to the 1st of January, 1864, at least 5,000 found peace in believing.

I first noticed Louis in a shady retreat from the camp at Chaffin, in the year 1862, reading his Bible to a comrade in the woods. His quiet, earnest manner in his pious work struck me. I had before noticed him passingly, as your son, for your sak admirable sketch of him, written by his adjutant and intimate friend, Captain W. Gordon McCabe, it is said of him, while in winter-quarters near Fredericksburg in 1862-63: He spent the winter much as he had done the last, attending to the administration of affairs in camp and busying himself in promoting the comfort of his

We left General Pendleton, and were aon, we had but little time for religious service during the whole of 1862. On the 16th of December, 1862, we went into quarters at Camp Gregg Court House, and Morton's Ford. The first was during the winter of 1862, and the others were during the summer of 1863.
