John Albert Broadus (1827â€“1895) was an American Baptist pastor and President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Broadus was ordained in 1850, became pastor of the Baptist church in Charlottesville. He delivered a lecture at the University of Virginia in memorial to Professor Gessner Harrison in 1873. A decade later, in 1883, he delivered an address on the Confederate cause at Louisville's Cave Hill Cemetery. The address was an important part of reunion, for it argued that both sides were partly correct in their positions that led to war. In 1859, Broadus became professor of New Testament interpretation and homiletics at the new Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. During the American Civil War, he served as a Confederate chaplain to Robert E. Lee's army in Northern Virginia. In 1888, he became Southern Seminary's second president. In 1889, Broadus delivered the Beecher Lectures at Yale Divinity School.
