Abstract

Covering topics such as comradery, courage, desertion and military justice, this monograph explores the totality of the Civil War experience. Through analysis of letters and records left behind by individual soldiers from both the North and the South, Carmichael focuses not on what soldiers thought but rather how they thought. He reveals how well-established notions of duty or disobedience, morality or immorality, loyalty or disloyalty, and bravery or cowardice were blurred by war. [WorldCat]
