Very boring, and a lot of homesickness. Talk of desertion,with moral,up,and down.
Men from both sides would sneak away, and meet each other in small groups at night,and talk about there families,and civilian life.Swap food stuffs and other things. Would often shake hands and hug each other,wish them well,but would often say,I hope I dod;nt see you dureing battle cause I;ll have to kill ya. Good luck!Some were literally brothers.
i have no idea like?
Photography played a role in the Civil War. It let civilians see what the war was like. Mathew Brady was a photographer who took pictures of soldiers, camp life, and battlefields.
they were basically nurses and helpers to the soldiers
Camp life typically consisted of lots of drilling-- most soldiers were awoken promptly at 5 AM or 6 AM in winter by their superior officers. They would have breakfast rations, (if available) and then procede with drilling, or training to be better soldiers. Besides drilling, a soldier's days would be filled with cleaning the camp, performing chores like chopping and collecting firewood, and whatever else he could do to pass the time. Many soldiers played cards, gambled, sang songs, told stories and jokes, and wrote letters to their loved ones. Camp life could be very boring, indeed. It was usually very dirty and riddled with filth, and sleeping quarters were usually very crowded and smelled with body odor; most soldiers did not get the chance to bathe very often.
they trained in local army camps. they did hours of drills and exercises. most soldiers were fed fine until they got on the battlefield when their diet became more strict some went starving because the supply train could not reach them from Kristen
Boredom. Most of the solders time during the Civil War was spent waiting. Camp life was in tents, keeping everything cleaned and cleaning it again. Meals were not great, but adequate. For the most part, Northern solders ate better than southern solders. They sang a lot. Some of the songs they sang even protested against the war. They wrote a lot. They practiced marching. They practiced shooting.
they are pay less than white soldiers.
subjects like weather...WHAT THEY DO IN CAMP AND HOW MUCH THEY MISS THEIR FAMILIES
The blacks helped the whites, and were totally and completely free, and fought for the union against the confederacy.
what was the personal life like for a ww2 German soldier
There was no civil war for Africa.
I don't know...but I would like to.
i think 28 36 something like that
They wore gray uniforms
How was Clara Bartons early life like?
The Roman soldiers fought in the civil wars in Italy because at the time of the civil wars, the legionary swore his allegiance to his general, not to the emperor. (No emperor at the time, anyhow) If someone like Caesar or Pompey ordered a battle the soldiers would obey because of their military oath.
marched like robots - this is a simile
Life in a Confederate or Union army was filled with boredom, fear, mischief, disease, and death. During the Civil War, military service meant long hours of drills, inadequate food and shelter, disease, and intolerable weather. Camp life included everything from days of sitting in camp to recollections of sheer terror. Transforming from civilians into soldiers was extremely hard and arduous. Sometimes, like at Fredericksburg, they could have a bit of fun; they had a snowball fight! The conditions brought many diseases and killed over twice as many people than combat wounds did. One place a soldier did not really want to live was in a camp. Jonathan Letterman, medical director of the Army of the Potomac, helped with this problem, but it was never really solved.
