Throughout the Civil War, Americans relied upon religion to

shape their understanding of the conflict. As furious

campaigns raged across the national landscape, Northerners

and Southerners saw the hand of God at work in human history.

Unfortunately, historians have not adequately dealt with this

aspect of the conflict. In order to treat this

historiographical void, this work focuses on the changes in

religion wrought by civil war. More precisely, it

concentrates on warfare's effects on Virginia's homefront

Baptist churches and how these churches responded. This

study, therefore, sheds light on the physical and spiritual

ramifications that America's greatest trial had on Virginia's

religious institutions.
