Doctor Quintard, Chaplain C.S.A. and Second Bishop of Tennessee
Edited by: Sam Davis Elliott
The Memoir and Civil War Diary of Charles Todd Quintard
Trained as a physician and ordained an Episcopal priest, Charles Todd Quintard was born, raised, and educated in the North. He migrated to the South to pursue a medical career but was inspired by the Bishop of Tennessee to serve the Church. In 1861, Quintard joined the 1st Tennessee Infantry as its chaplain. He kept a diary of his experiences and later penned a memoir. This volume combines a previously unpublished portion of the diary with Quintard’s memoir. These lively war-year remembrances shed new light on the lesser-known western theater’s military, civilian, and religious fronts.
