Son of General William Tecumseh Sherman - Jesuit Priest, Patriot , and Kinda of Crazy ( St. Ignatius of Loyola Memorial Day Post )

Today the Church like every July 31 celebrates and recalls St. Ignatius of Loyola .

So the Jesuits come out of the woodwork today. On that note I wanted to highlight one of the Jesuit Priests I have always have taken a interest in . That is Rev Thomas Ewing Sherman son the great Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman.

He had to say an interesting life that had some troubles. I am glad in the end it all seemed to work out for him. If you are ever driving down Interstate 49 in South Louisiana stop off and say a prayer at his grave in beautiful Grand Coteau.

Find a Grave has a good bio on him and mentions in the weird quirks of history who is buried besides him.
