Chaplain Cook's Pulpit
This page is a memorial to Ben Maryniak who was an active researcher, author and presenter of Civil War and related material. He made frequent appearances in the guise of Chaplain Philos G. Cook of Buffalo's 94th NY Vol. Infantry where he recreated worship services as they may have occurred in the camps and battlefields of the Civil War. Ben was also the President of the Buffalo Civil War Round Table which has been renamed the Benedict R Maryniak Chapter in his honor. He was also an active contributor to the Gettysburg Discussion Group.
