Both Prayed to the Same God: Religion and Faith in the American Civil War
Both Prayed to the Same God is the first book-length, comprehensive study of religion in the Civil War. While much research has focused on religion in a specific context of the civil war, this book provides a needed overview of this vital yet largely forgotten subject of American History. Writing passionately about the subject, Father Robert Miller presents this history in an accessible but scholarly fashion. Beginning with the religious undertones in the lead up to the war and concluding with consequences on religion in the aftermath, Father Miller not only shows us a forgotten aspect of history, but how our current historical situation is not unprecedented.

A thorough, comprehensive and yet eminently readable book about a much neglected area of Civil War studies. With a forward by James McPherson, it fills a real gap in how we look at and study America's greatest conflict. Well done .... check it out!
