Annotation Many Americans, argues Michael C. C. Adams, think of the Civil War as more glorious, less awful, than the reality. Adams presents a stark portrait of the human costs of the Civil War and gives readers a more accurate appreciation of its profound and lasting consequences. He examines the sharp contrast between the expectations of recruits versus the realities of dirt and exposure, poor diet, malnutrition, and disease. Drawing extensively on letters and memoirs of individual soldiers, Adams assembles vivid accounts of the distress they faced daily and provides a powerful counterpoint to Civil War glorification.
