Confederate Devotions

The GREAT revival in the Confederate Army, during the period from 1861 to 1865, is one of the most unique revivals in American history. Some call it The Third Great Awakening. This work of Divine Grace first appeared in camps and hospitals around Richmond. When the army moved, the revival was greatly accelerated. Services were conducted through the week in units by chaplains and missionaries sent by various denominations. General John B. Gordon, who actively participated in the revival, tells us that in every camp religious altars were erected around which ragged soldiers knelt and worshiped: "The religious revivals which ensued formed a most remarkable and important chapter in war history. Rocks and woods rang with appeals to holiness. Thousands became soldiers of the Cross." The reports of the revival read like a roster of the Southern Army spreading from company to regiment, regiment to brigade, brigade to division, and from division to army corps. Go back in time as each week actual historical tracts, devotions, and newspaper articles will be posted here with a transcript and a collectible download!

"CHRIST IN YOU."
BY REV. CHARLES F. DEEMS, D.D.

"A little deeper, doctor, and you will touch the Emperor!" This was the exclamation of a French soldier when the surgeon was probing for a wound in the region of his heart. He felt the instrument drawing nearer and nearer the very seat of life. It seemed almost to lay itself on his heart. The sensations were agonizing. He almost endured death in the hope of prolonging life.

True Eminence Founded on Holiness.

"I will set him on high, because he hath known my name."
PSALMS, 91: VERSE 14.

"How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle! O, Jonathan ! thou wast slain in thy high places." Such was the lament of David and Israel over the brave and generous Jonathan, slain in the high places of the field, in defence of his country and people, against their hereditary foes: and such is now a nation's lament over a greater than Jonathan the son of Saul. With a stricken heart, and bitter tears, this whole people bow in grief, and as one man, are ready to utter the touching words of David over his friend: " We are distressed for thee: very pleasant hast thou been unto us: thy love to us was wonderful, passing the love of women. How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished! "
