The excerpts in this section tend to concentrate on the immediate and longer-term aftermath of particular battles as recorded by combatants and magazine correspondents. They constantly stress the sheer number of casualties – horses as well as men – and address the question whether they are even given a decent burial. Here the performance of African American soldiers in combat is also examined.
