Courage, perseverance, and dedication were hallmarks of the Civil War soldier. These qualities, along with their disarming humanness, have lent an enduring attraction to their story. In The Loyal, True, and Brave, readers will learn how the soldier's story has changed over the years, being told in different ways as passing generations introduced their own questions and interests. Steven E. Woodworth weaves together a variety of writings-by historians and by Civil War soldiers themselves-so that readers are presented with a lively, balanced picture of all the major aspects of the Civil War soldier's life. Presenting the experiences of both Union and Confederate soldiers, The Loyal, True, and Brave contains detailed descriptions of every facet of the soldier's life, including enlistment, combat, hospitals, prison, and camp life. The Loyal, True, and Brave is ideal for courses on the Civil War and Reconstruction, American nineteenth century history, and American social and cultural history.
