BRIEF: Our State magazine features role of religion in Civil War

In its last two issues, Our State magazine has featured a two-part series on the role of religion during The Civil War by Philip Gerard, the chair of the creative writing department at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. The stories are part of Gerard's wider series focusing on individual stories of The Civil War and its impact on North Carolina

Religion in the Ranks, part one in the January issue speaks about the belief of many Southerners that God was on their side in the cause of keeping the way of life and institution of slavery alive in the South.

Part two of “Religion in the Ranks” in the February issue follows the story of a Civil War chaplain serving the Confederate soldiers.
