A Soldier's Life


Author(s):
Abstract:
North Carolina gave over 125,000 troops to the Confederate Army. Almost 20,000 were killed, and another 20,000 died of disease. Thousands more suffered crippling wounds. The harsh life of a soldier is revealed through letters of Jeremiah Glover, Rowan County; Bryan Grimes, Pitt County; and Samuel H. Walkup, Union County.
