As usual in such cases, the chaplain approached him, and was about offering words of consolation, when the wounded Colonel interrupted him with, “Pass on. I’m a Mohammedan.”

I’m a lover of God and His Son Jesus Christ. In addition I love to make yesterday’s words come alive through the republishing of good and profitable books of old. The Civil War project is an ongoing labor of love. – Karan
