This chapter considers the morale of both Federal and Confederate armies. Federals pondered the army's future, their attitudes shaped by the horrors of Fredericksburg, a loss of trust in their leaders, monotonous hardships, the steady toll of disease, worries about home folks, and lack of pay. In contrast, Confederates' spirits remained high as faith in Lee and his generals overshadowed ominous shortages of men and supplies.
