The period from 1861 –1865 proved to be one of the greatest periods of trial and suffering in our nation's history.When the prospect of war became a reality, the average age of a soldier was twenty-two.To an inspiring young man who was bored with "life on the farm," the romanticism and exhilaration of battle was an allurement that soon tried the faith and physical stamina of all who crossed war's threshold.The threat of losing life and limb from a hailstorm of bullets and shrapnel was compounded by the ever-present danger of dysentery and all sorts of diseases with little means for treatment.In spite of these frustrating circumstances, many of the soldiers found great consolation and relief through prayer and reading the Bible.
