Summary
Joseph Twichell cut short his seminary studies to become a Union Army chaplain in New York's Excelsior Brigade. His letters chronicle his observations at the Peninsula and Wilderness Campaigns, as well as at the battles of Second Bull Run, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg and Spotsylvania. Writing about politics and slavery and the theological and cultural divide between him and his men, who were primarily poor Irish American Catholics, Twichell offers a valuable perspective of the Civil War from an underrepresented class of soldier, the army chaplain.
