Remembering Reverend-Captain John Steel

On this day in Chaplain Corps history, 25 March 1756, Rev. John Steel was commissioned in the Provincial Army, to fight during the French and Indian War, while continuing to minister to his flock. He again took up arms during the Revolutionary War, becoming known as Reverend Captain Steel as he provided religious support while also commanding his unit.
