Sam Davis Elliot combines an unpublished portion of Quintard's diary together with his long ago published memoirs to produce a volume that offers readers a comprehensive glimpse into the high command of the Confederate Army of Tennessee, including details of that army's fierce and crucial engagements. A trained physician and an ordained Episcopal priest, Quintard's role as chaplain of a major army put him in contact with numerous luminaries such as Lee, Hood, Bragg, Forrest, and Polk.
