Richard Hooker Wilmer, only Episcopal Clergyman to serve as a Bishop in the Confederate States of America, was the ancestor of a gentleman who visited the First White House of the Confederacy recently. He told me he would send me a copy of an article on this distinguished gentleman, and I was so pleased to receive it.
In the article it says that Wilmer was as devoted to the principle of the right to throw off the yoke of an oppressive government as had been his grandfather, who served in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War.
He guided the Confederacy spiritually and with great practicality, both during the War and afterwards during reconstruction. You will find this book on his life fascinating, I feel sure.
