This chapter focuses on a Confederate private named Harrison H. Hanes, who knew “nothing a bout the war only there are many men here” at his drill camp in Garysburg, North Carolina. Writing to his friend Nancy Williams, Hanes asserted, “[I] still feel that I will get to see you before long,” if not through a furlough then “the probability is that I can any how after the 4 of July for it is thought congress will setle the mater but if they fail to [do] this it will be don by the bulet cirtin unless the north will let the south a lone.” Even those who might have known better had little inkling of the revolutionary impact of the Civil War.
