The Civil War used to be essentially an issue of Americans killing Americans. This simple truth is what Jonathan Steplyk explores in Fighting Means Killing, the primary book-length find out about of Union and Confederate squaddies’ attitudes towards, and stories of, killing within the Civil War.
Drawing upon letters, diaries, and postwar memories, Steplyk examines what squaddies and veterans thought of killing sooner than, all over, and after the conflict. How did those squaddies view sharpshooters? How about hand-to-hand struggle? What language did they use to explain killing in struggle? What cultural and societal elements influenced their attitudes? And what used to be the have an effect on of race in battlefield atrocities and sour clashes between white Confederates and black Federals? These are the questions that Steplyk seeks to reply to in Fighting Means Killing, a piece that bridges the space between army and social history-and that shifts the point of interest at the tragedy of the Civil War from combating and demise for reason and nation to combating and killing.
