Death: Apr. 22, 1886

Poet, Catholic Priest. The date, year and location of his birth are in question, some saying he was born Norfolk, Virginia. During the Civil War, he served unofficially as a chaplain in the Confederate army. Postwar, he was noted for his poetry celebrating the Confederacy and the "Lost Cause." A book of his poetry has been published and perhaps his best known poem is "The Conquered Banner." He became known as "The Poet-Priest of the Confederacy." (bio by: Steve Dunn)
