Mass without pews--wartime edition starting off with Fr. Corby

Fr. Corby giving a general absolution to the Irish brigade before the Battle of Gettysburg.

Reader, Newguy gave me a terrific idea for a series. I found some photos of Mass or priests either before or after Mass on the battlefield and I'll be posting them every week or so. The men at these Holy Masses lacked pews, roofs, kneelers but they really didn't lack a thing.
