For many Southern soldiers, the Civil War was as much a test of physical determination as it was a test of one's own religiosity. In most cases, the conflict bolstered the Christian faith of those who fought for the Confederacy, as they looked to the Bible and fellow Christian soldiers for spiritual comfort and guidance. Some rebel soldiers even returned home to assume leadership positions in their local churches at war's end.
