A study of African American chaplains from the end of the Civil War to the first decade of this century, focusing on five individual stories. Lamm (history, Mount Olive College) delineates the role of black chaplains within the institutional context of the US Army at a time he considers to be the nadir of the black experience in America, when the hope engendered by the end of slavery had been dimmed with the introduction of rigorous segregation in the South and the legal recognition of the system by the Supreme Court in 1896. He begins with a chapter that explores the religious heritage of black Americans and African-American Christianity, before examining the five cases. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
