This chapter focuses on how Civil War Soldiers composed their stories. The language, aesthetics, and writing style can tell us much about the cultural context that structured how they thought and they expressed themselves on paper. Paying careful attention to how soldiers’ words came to be articulated reveals the cultural screens through which Civil War Americans perceived and interpreted their experiences, then projected them onto paper.
