“Death was in every shot.” What was it like for the Civil War soldier in combat and in camp? What led average men to withstand the horrors of Bloody lane at Antietam, Devil’s Den at Gettysburg and the Mule Shoe at Spotsylvania Courthouse? How has he been portrayed in American popular culture? Recommended reading: For Cause and Comrades, James McPherson. Free of charge and open to all interested members of the public.
