This chapter describes the dismal camp life of Federal troops. As the army languished in camps along the Rappahannock, the Federals suffered from the usual but sometimes deadly aspects of camp life: the cold, the food, the disease, the boredom, and the loneliness. There was nothing extraordinary about their lives during the last part of November 1862, but the commonplace formed the backdrop for what lay ahead.
