This chapter discusses how the Catholic clergy and sisters became the leaders and role models of the Irish community. The vast majority of Irish Confederates whether in military service or on the home front, were Roman Catholics. The position of the Catholic Church on the Confederacy was fundamental in determining significant Irish support for the new nation.
