Here’s Stephen Berry of the University of Georgia giving a very powerful presentation on “When Metal Meets Mettle: The Hard Realities of Civil War Soldiering.” This was the 2014 Roller Bottimore Lecture at the American Civil War Museum.
The video’s description says, “University of Georgia Professor Stephen Berry lectured on the difficult and often gruesome life of a soldier during the American Civil War. This lecture took place at the University of Richmond and was co-sponsored by the university’s history department and the American Civil War Museum. This 19th annual Bottimore Lecture was made possible by an endowment from the Roller Bottimore Foundation.”
