There were legions of common soldiers who served in the Civil War. For many their story remains untold. Through reading Fox's account of the 1st Cavalry and its commander, one can develop a picture of what life was like for the common soldier. Their story is like many of the private soldiers--hunger, boredom, fatigue, loneliness, and death. The regiment was engaged in over 150 actions. Barringer took part in 76 battles and was wounded three times.
