Thanks. I am hoping to get the proposal done by next week. I am looking at
Duke's collection, Southern Historical Collection at Chapel Hill, and the
Georgia State Archives in Atlanta. Or maybe Virginia's State Archives.
Just not sure since this would be the first time that I've been to a
collection to look through print material. Not really sure about all this
as of yet. Thanks for the help, Doctor Tom.

Inf, CSA and he was a devout Catholic. He did not mention chaplains, but
talks a lot about visits from priests, religion in general, etc. Was
published 1900 or 1991 or so.

I have been doing some research on Confederate chaplains. More specifically
I am looking at chaplains within the Second Corps, Army of Northern
Virginia. Most of the primary sources that I have been able to find are
from some of the chaplains themselves (i.e.. J. William Jones, A.D. Betts,
Bennett, etc.). In order to prove that religion helped build and sustain
Confederate morale I need to look at the common soldiers themselves. This
is the area that I am having the problem in. A majority of the sources that
I was able to get my hands on never mentioned religious services within the
camps (except for instance some of Stonewall's letters home to his wife,
Dabney's letters, and some mentions in W.D. Pender's letters). I am putting
together a research grant proposal and the help that I need is if anyone
knows of a collection in the South that holds a great deal of Second Corps
sources. I'm leaning towar!

as being the primary places. Does anyone know of others that may help in
this endeavor. I have a good chance of getting this grant and need to get a
proposal to the office within two weeks so if anyone could help, please do.
