Soldier's Life

Slept in damp tents

Out of 22 million soldiers, 620,000 soldiers perished

Little training

Dead in just minutes of a battle

Impure drinking water

Even soldiers got bored and homesick

Rations were very scarce in the Confederate Troops

Severe shortages in camps

Loss of individual freedom

In training, used cornstalks as weapons

Four hundred thousand died of disease and sickness

Even suffering any type of wound was a risk of death
