(p.61) Chapter Three Battle
Private Confederacies

James J. Broomall

University of North Carolina Press

Now fully immersed in their military experiences, Confederate soldiers struggled to express in letters to their families the scale and emotional impact of war’s carnage. The Battle of Gettysburg serves as a lens for the examination of the soldiers’ efforts to express their new-found emotional experiences in words. Through these efforts, the men’s self-perceptions and identities were often altered forever.
