In 1860, Methodist Minister, John Brady raised a company and entered the Confederate army as Captain in the 39th GA REG., Cummings Bridgade. It was said that as well as commanding his regiment, he did about as much preaching to the soldiers as any of the chaplains. In his is zeal for souls he resigned his rank and applied for Chaplain. The appointment came the day after he was killed in the Battle of Resaca. Three fellow ministers buried him, after which they knelt around his grave in silent prayer, remembering his wife and children then in Dawson County.
