Life in the North VS Life in South

Life in the North for the Soliders
The solider camps were hardly fit for humans to live in. As the war went on, there were fewer and fewer supplies (clothes, shoes, food, etc.). Most of the soldiers died from disease and dehydration rather than from bullets and cannon shells. The tents that the soldiers slept in were described as "pieces of cloth pitched up with sticks". It was far easier to enlist as a soldier than to get a release from the army, so by the time soldiers realized the difficulties of army life, it was to late to quit.
