Civil War Jesuit, The Rebel Chaplain

Joseph has placed this missive today...

For all four years of the American Civil War, the French-born Jesuit Louis-Hipployte Gache (1817-1907) served as a Chaplain with the Confederate Army. His letters, written between May 1861 and July 1865, describe his experiences with the Tenth Louisiana Infantry. In 1981 Father Cornelius M. Buckley, S.J., collected Father Gache’s wartime letters together in a book titled A Frenchman, A Chaplain, A Rebel. During the Civil War some six hundred women religious served as nurses in the both the Union and Confederate armies.

Thanks Joseph...
