Life in camp could be quite boring. The soldiers played cards and dice. They played Board Games such as Chess and checkers. They sang and told stories. The regimental bands would put on concerts. When they got to go into a town they might be able to take in a show. Of course, armies always attract women who, for a price, will help a soldier forget his loneliness for a little while.
