'Patriot by Nature, Christian by Faith': Major General William Dorsey Pender, C.S.A.


Abstract:
A look at the Civil War career of Confederate major general William Dorsey Pender, in an attempt to provide new insight into the Army of Northern Virginia and one of its most important young leaders. Pender's role in several battles as well as relationships with fellow officers, the personal and state politics that complicated his promotion process, and the beliefs, opinions, and experiences of a leader who expressively proclaimed attitudes shared by many other Southerners in his position are examined.
