Show Summary Details


This chapter describes the advancement of the Federals. There was something grand about so many soldiers tramping along the roads, through woods, and across fields. The men would naturally complain of the cold, the mud, and the food, but the marching itself made them exuberant. The dissipation of the torpor and lethargy caused by the lull in the fighting since Antietam had been almost palpable.
