Let me guess, You are needing to know this answr for a history class at HCC?


Joseph Plumb Martian was glory seeking and joined because his friends joined. Some wanted the clothes that were given and land that was given when you joined. Many did not want to join but were drafted into the war. The conditions were poor. The clothes that they were given at the beginning was it. The food was minimal, if at all. The mostly ate "firecakes" which were water and flour mixed and cooked over the fire until they were hard enough you could almost build a house out of them. there were few blankets and, as expected being outside all the time, the men had little friends: ticks, fleas, lice.
