J. William Jones, Christ in the camp, or religion in Lee's army, Chapter 2: influence of Christian officers. (search)
Chapter 2: influence of Christian officers. No army, with whose history I am acquainted, at least, was ever blessed with so large a proportion of high officers who were earnest Christian men, as the Army of Northern Virginia. We had at first such specimens of the Christian soldier as R. E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, D. H. Hill, T. R. Cobb, A. H. Colquitt, Kirby Smith, J. E. B. Stuart, W. N. Pendleton, John B. Gordon, C. A. Evans, A. M. Scales, Willie Pegram, Lewis Minor Coleman, Thos. H. Carter, Carter Braxton, Charles S. Venable, and a host of others too numerous to mention. And during the war Generals Ewell, Pender, Hood, R. H. Anderson, Rodes, Paxton, W. H. S. Baylor, Colonel Lamar, and a number of others of our best officers professed faith in Christ. Nor was the example of these noble men merely negative— many of them were active workers for the Master, and did not hesitate, upon all proper occasions, to stand up for Jesus. Our Christian President, Jefferson Davis, wa

arolina Brigade, with great pleasure, by reason of interest manifested by the soldiers in the important subject of personal salvation. There have been as many as twenty-five and thirty forward for prayer at a time. Three were baptized last Thursday, and others have connected themselves with other denominations. On yesterday I aided in ordination of Brother Eatman, of North Carolina, a chaplain in this brigade, and for four years past an acceptable Methodist preacher. I am to-day going to Pegram's battalion of artillery, and if the prospects are encouraging, will remain with them several days. Nearly the entire army is on the Rapidan, with the enemy full in front, and a battle imminent; there is, therefore, but little opportunity for holding protracted meetings. T. H. Pritchard. near Orange Court House, September 25. Messrs.

ould be proud of in chivalry, or his enemies dread in the example of martyrdom. I have spoken of General J. E. B. Stuart, the flower of cavaliers, who said to President Davis, who stood at his dying bedside: If it were God's will, I should like to live longer and serve my country. If I must die, I should like to see my wife first; but if it is His will that I die now, I am ready and willing to go if God and my country think that I have fulfilled my destiny and done my duty. Colonel Wm. Johnson Pegram—Willie Pegram, the boy artillerist, we used to call him—left the University of Virginia in April, 1861, at the age of nineteen, and enlisted as a private in an artillery company, but, by superb courage and splendid skill, rose to be colonel of artillery and the idol of the whole army, when he fell on that ill-fated day at Five Forks which caused the breaking of Lee's lines and the fall of the Confederacy. In an every way admirable sketch of him, written by his adjutant and intim

. But drunkenness was fearfully prevalent all through the army; so much so that our Chaplains' Association appointed a committee (of which I was one) to memorialize General Early on the subject, which resulted in an order from him prohibiting the liquor traffic. If anything noteworthy occurred during the summer, Brother See can give it to you, for he remained faithfully with his command on foot all that summer. Near the last of November General Gordon received orders to take his own and Pegram's Division to the vicinity of Petersburg. For some time after reaching the lines on Hatcher's Run we were shifting about, skirmishing and fighting, and nothing could be done towards building chapels till late in the winter. In that time I obtained a furlough. Visiting the Louisiana Brigade, I remarked to them that I was sure they would build a theatre as usual, and as timber was very scarce, and there were so few interested about religious matters, I feared they would not build a chapel;
