"This is the first full-length life of General Leonidas Polk, 'Bishop-militant' of the Confederacy, since the biography published by his son more than a half-century ago. It is the story of a man whose deeds of peace were no less than his feats of war. The first Episcopal bishop of Louisiana and the Southwest and founder of the University of the South ('Sewanee'), Polk climaxed his career as one of the foremost figures of the Confederacy. Polk was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, in 1806. He attended West Point, where he became a friend of Jefferson Davis. Turning from the military to the ministry after graduation, Polk won the praise of the Episcopal Church for his abilities in directing and organizing, and was eventually commissioned missionary bishop of the Southwest. However, so great was his belief in the cause of the South -- that each state was independent and could secede if it chose -- that with the approach of the Civil War he announced the secession his diocese, left the embryo university he was building, his Louisiana bishopric and episcopacy, and 'buckled the sword over the gown'. He accepted appointment as major general in the Provisional Army of the Confederacy in late June, 1861, and was assigned to command Department No. 2 with headquarters at Memphis. He soon led his forces into Kentucky and occupied Columbus. When Generals A.S. Johnston and P.G.T Beauregard were assigned to the West, Polk became subordinate to them. He commanded a corps at Shiloh, a wing in the Kentucky campaign, a corps at Stone's River, and a wing at Chickamauga. Disagreement with General Bragg after Chickamauga resulted in Polk's relief from command in the Army of the Tennessee and his transfer to Mississippi. When J.E. Johnston succeeded Bragg in North Georgia, Polk's force was ordered to his assistance. The Bishop-General was killed at Pine Mountain on June 14, 1864"--Jacket
