Focusing on writings from the American Revolutionary War, Mexican-American War and American Civil War, Benjamin Cooper uncovers how soldiers and sailors from the demanded that their value as American citizens and authors. Military men and women participated in early American print culture, but they struggled against civilian perception of their character.
