Overview

Tens of thousands of men served in the armies of the Civil War. At first, many of them seemed to expect a glorious adventure that would test their courage and be over quickly. The war lasted many years, though, testing their endurance and commitment to their cause. This book describes in depth the soldiers' lives, including the treatment of African-American soldiers. The tales of colorful and daring spies and "daughters of the regiment" complete the picture of life in both armies during the Civil War.
