Episode Description:

As we approach the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War, stop for a moment and consider what the daily camp life of a soldier during the Civil War must have been like. In a war where the technology was changing rapidly, but the tactics remained as they were during the Napoleonic era, a soldier’s life was hard. How did they pass their time? How did they avoid disease, the prime killer of soldiers from both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line? How was technology changing the tactics of war? And how do you care for the wounded – from a Surgeon’s perspective? These and other questions are answered in Along the Blackstone’s Episode #14 with the help of Civil War Re-enactors from Battery “B”, 1st Rhode Island Light Artillery Regiment and members from the 22nd,the 28th & 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Regiments. Enjoy the period music performed by PENDRAGON of Cumberland, RI
