There are many
sensitive issues surrounding the Civil War, particularly its causes, the
motivations of those who fought, and the interpretation of political and
military events of that time period. It is not our mission to answer these
questions or resolve these debates.
Instead, Civil War Dads
focuses on the spiritual civil war raging today for
the heart and soul of our families
and nation. That war cannot be won without godly men fulfilling their
biblical calling to leadership, service, and sacrifice as husbands and
fathers. The Civil War is merely used to illustrate these biblical truths.
Below are answers to common questions we receive.
Is Civil War Dads Pro-Union or
Neither. Civil War Dads is a balanced presentation making
use of Union and Confederate examples without taking sides. We
receive positive feedback from Yankees and Rebels alike and hope you will
find this presentation to be challenging and encouraging.
Why does Steve wear
Union military attire?
Steve wears Union military attire because he is a Civil War reenactor in honor of
his great-great grandfather, Pvt. William Fletcher Hughey, of the 73rd
Ohio Volunteer Infantry and 19th Veteran Reserve Corps. The Union uniform is a convenient prop because
that's the uniform Steve already happens to own.
Do you discuss the causes of the Civil War?
No, though we may mention them
to put historical events in their proper context.
