Civil War Battle SERGEANT HART NAILING THE COLORS TO THE FLAG-STAFF OF FORT SUMTER. The heat and vapor became stifling yet the exhausted garrison kept the old flag flying. Eight times its staff had been hit; but at near 2 P.M. that day the staff was shot off near the peak. Peter Hart carried it, with the piece of the staff, and fastened it, where the soiled banner was kept flying defiantly.

Stephen Crane’s Civil War novel examines the soldier’s worst fear—realizing he is a coward. The book’s groundbreaking realism makes it important not only as literature, but also as a window into the life of a soldier during the Civil War. The Red Badge of Courage

Story Starter “ The cold passed reluctantly from the earth, and the retiring fogs revealed an army stretched out on the hills, resting. As the landscape changed from brown to green, the army awakened, and began to tremble with eagerness at the noise of rumors. It cast its eyes upon the roads, which were growing from long troughs of liquid mud to proper thoroughfares. A river, amber-tinted in the shadow of its banks, purled at the army's feet; and at night, when the stream had become of a sorrowful blackness, one could see across it the red, eyelike gleam of hostile camp-fires set in the low brows of distant hills.”
