I must admit I’m kinda an amateur history nerd. With all going on in the world today and the polarization of everything I really debated about weather or not to post this. Id like to try to keep this discussion as level and mature as possible. As a christian I’ve often wondered if the American Civil War hurt Americans faith adversely post war vs pre war. And if we still feel the effect on our faith from it to this day. Do we as Americans put a check,or limit our faith somewhat by default due to the circumstances and what we learned of that war? I know both sides had many leaders that were absolutely convinced God was on their side. Gen. Stonewall Jackson’s faith seems to stand out above others. Is it possible Americans are weakened and take a step back away from faith due to this fact? Any Christian historians out there care to enlighten me or is there a good book to read regarding it?
