Learn the Lifestyle of the Common Western Federal Soldier

DID YOU KNOW?  Civil War soldiers spent 49 of every 50 days in camp. This was a great age of individualism, and for those millions of civilians on loan to the military, camp life was a combination of endless drill, monotonous routines, constant boredom, homesickness and an underlying fear of ever-present sickness laced with a healthy dose of practical jokes, religion, boxing, wrestling, fishing, letter writing and gambling.
