"Glenn V. Longacre and John E. Haas are to be commended for giving us such a detailed look at the motivation, courage, and especially the political infighting of officers who served in the Army of the Cumberland. Opdycke's letters are expertly annotated with rich detail about the lives of individuals, including privates."--Journal of Southern History
"An absolute goldmine. . . . The Battle for God and the Right . . . is an absolute must for serious students of the western theater. The reader is taken beyond the bland, often self-serving reports of the Official Records and shown the behind-the-scenes personal stories."--Journal of Military History

This book is written from the perspective of the letters that General Emerson Opdycke wrote to his family (most particularily his wife) and is edited with excellent details of persons and events that paralelled his life. It covers the period from his days starting as a Lieutenant through the end of the war. A must have....not a religious book.
