Against secession, he still enlisted to fight for his home state. Challenge historical stereotypes and shatter preconceived notions of what prompted Southern men to take up arms. Over half a million lives were lost. What made them think the sacrifices were worth it? The promise of a better life helped fill the Southern ranks.
I am a Union Soldier
Learn about the equipment, uniforms, and life of a Union soldier in the American Civil War. Why did Northern men take up arms? Over half a million lives were lost. What made them think the sacrifices were worth it? Was it preservation of the Union? Was it an abolitionist spirit? While the end of the war resulted in the deliverance of millions from slavery, the idea of Emancipation alone was not enough to fill the Northern ranks.
Grand armies maneuvered and engaged, fighting skirmishes and battles from Arizona to the Dakota Territory to Pennsylvania, as well as naval engagements along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts and to the open waters of Europe. But what about those left at home? Loyalties on the home front were not always clear amid the hardships of war. It might not have been how you think.
