Really? You’re Kidding Me …

“A frequent topic of discussion among some Civil War buffs is the question of which side, if any, God favored in the Civil War.”  So I’ve read recently.

Really?  A frequent topic?

There’s been some very interesting research about religion and the Civil War as well as the religious views of some of its leaders (although I suspect that when it comes to comparing the two presidents, Davis lags far behind Lincoln in this regard when it comes to scholarly inquiry).  But I’ve never hear any serious discussion as to which side God actually favored.  Have you?  And what evidence would you bring forward in support of your argument?
